Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

The Core Ensemble, a series of chamber music theatre works that combines several performance elements and focuses on celebrating diversity, has visited Waynesburg University before. Dr. Ronda DePriest, director of the Music Program, arranged this visit and is confident that the group will live up to expectations.

“Core Ensemble was with us a few years ago in our Performing Arts Series presentation “Of Ebony Embers,” said DePriest. “It is certain that we will experience a similar success with this year’s PAS presentation of “Ain’t I a Woman!” The individual performers are [professionals] in every sense of the word, and the collective ensemble shows tremendous mastery of their art.”

DePriest said the event gives students, faculty and staff the unique opportunity to have an exciting performance, with many musical and theatrical elements, brought right to them.

“Often, we are limited by time and logistics in terms of the number of art, theater and music events to which we can travel to attend,” she said. “The Performing Arts Series brings these professional artists to us.”
