Mercyhurst College to host tri-state band and chorus

Mercyhurst College and the D'Angelo School of Music will host the Tri-State Honor Band and Chorus on Thursday, Nov. 15, through Nov. 17, 2001, in the Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center.

High school musicians from the tri-state region will come spend three days at Mercyhurst College. They will spend part of their visit preparing for a Saturday concert, but the youngsters will also attend workshops in the D’Angelo School of Music. While the students are practicing, the directors from the schools participating will also attend a variety of seminars.

The weekend provides a wonderful opportunity for music lovers – it will feature two free concerts in the Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center.

The first will feature the D’Angelo School of Music concert choir, wind ensemble and chamber ensembles. That performance, which is free and open to the public, will be held at 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16.

The Honor Band and Chorus will then each be showcased during a concert open to the public on Saturday, Nov. 17. The performance will begin at 1 p.m. in the Mary D'Angelo Performing Arts Center.

Conducting the chorus will be Dr. Peter Van den Hornert of Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

Conducting the band will be Mark Fonder of Ithaca College.

For more information, please contact Dr. Matthew Inkster, assistant professor of music, at 824-2449, or Rebecca Ryan, director of the D’Angelo choir, at 824-2061.
