Students to Present Concert at Susquehanna University
Published on June 19, 2012
More than 40 high school students who are participating in Susquehanna University’s summer Wind Ensemble Institute—most of them from central Pennsylvania—will present a finale concert on June 23 at 3 p.m. in the university’s Stretansky Concert Hall.
The public concert, conducted by Eric L. Hinton, associate professor of music and director of bands at Susquehanna University, will feature works by John Mackey, Morton Gould, Gustav Holst and Marco Putz.
The concert is the culmination of a week-long, residential summer program for talented high school musicians that focuses on chamber music and symphonic wind ensemble performance. Each summer, the Wind Ensemble Institute offers a full daily schedule of rehearsals, private lessons, seminars and performances. Students are admitted to the program by audition and have the opportunity to interact with distinguished Susquehanna faculty and other musically gifted peers. In addition to professional training and performing, the program includes social activities such as a game night, pool party and trip to Knoebels Amusement Resort.
Tickets are available at the door. Admission to the concert is $5 for adults and free for children, students, and Susquehanna faculty and staff.
