Waynesburg University’s small musical ensembles will perform for the second time this semester at Chamber Works II, Thursday, Nov. 16, at noon in the Marsh Center. The event is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

According to Dr. Ronda DePriest, professor of instrumental music and director of the Music Program, attendees at Chamber Works II can expect exciting new arrangements from the ensembles.

“Each Chamber Works concert is unique, because there are eight different chamber ensembles and a host of individual performers that present works on any given concert,” she said.

DePriest looks forward to the event because it gives students the opportunity to come together and explore their interests.

“I love that our students have these venues to share what music means in their lives,” she said. “It is great that Waynesburg students, from such a variety of degree plans, have the opportunity to be a part of something larger than themselves. The friendships that these students make is evident in the music they prepare and present throughout the year.”
