Second year students from the School of Performing Arts’ Music Performance program are looking forward to their Winter Concert Series, which gives each of them the opportunity to perform original pieces and their personal favourites.
The first concert, which takes place Friday, January 20 at 7 p.m. in the Florence Simmons Performance Hall, will feature second-year vocalists Brenna Clapp and Hayden Lysecki. Each student will perform for 20 minutes either as solo acts or with a backing band.
Program Manager Liam Corcoran said the Winter Concert Series gives the students valuable experience not only when they are on the stage, but also leading up to the performance.
“Unlike the ensemble showcases, where a group of students under the direction of an instructor work on pieces, students preparing for the Winter Showcase Series are responsible for every aspect of their performance, from the content to interpretation,” he said.
The second and third concerts will take place February 17 and March 17 in the Florence Simmons Performance Hall. Admission to all three concerts is free of charge.
