This weekend, the Department of Performing Arts is hosting over 100 high school students to be under the direction of Dr. Cindy Hutton, Dr. James Klein and guest conductor Jeffery Gershman, Associate Director of Bands at Indiana University. The concert will take place in the Music Recital Hall on Sunday, February 3 at 1:30 p.m. Admission is free for all.
The students will rehearse all day Saturday, their first and only rehearsal as a group before Sunday’s performance. Students are chosen for the ensemble based on the recommendation of their own band directors.
The Southern Oregon University Symphonic Band will also be making a guest appearance in the final concert on Saturday playing a premiere of a piece written by SOU faculty member, Dr. Jeff Richmond which will feature Dr. Richmond on solo trumpet.
