Waynesburg University’s small musical ensembles will showcase their work at Chamber Works II Thursday, April 21, at noon in the Marsh Center. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.
Dr. Ronda DePriest, associate professor of instrumental music, anticipates that the University’s woodwind quintet, brass ensemble, jazz ensemble and the James Randolph Kiltie Band will be among the groups contributing to the concert. The student-comprised ensembles are led by part-time faculty members of the University.
Not included in this semester’s Chamber Works concert is the chamber orchestra group, who will be holding their own concert Saturday, April 23. This is the group’s first isolated performance and will be entitled “Around the World in 80 Days.”
“This is the first time they’ve done a concert all on their own, which shows some growth in the program,” said DePriest. “We’re hoping it becomes a unit that can stand alone.”
Now in its eighth year, the Chamber Works program offers students in small ensembles a chance to focus on individual musical skills and develop leadership skills within their ensemble. Chamber Works concerts are offered twice each semester for the campus and local communities.
