Student Solo Concert at MU

by Johanna Vogt, Chloe Quimby - April 20, 2016

This Sunday, April 24th, Mansfield University will be hosting its annual Symphony Orchestra Student Solo concert. The students will showcase a variety of beautiful pieces from various composers, including one orchestral arrangement and four solo pieces. The concert will take place in Steadmen Theatre at 2:30pm on the campus of Mansfield University. While the concert is free and open to the public, the university always welcomes charitable donations of clothing for My Neighbor’s Closet in downtown Mansfield, which helps fund educational projects in Tioga County.

The orchestra will be performing a beautiful piece by Jean Sibelius, “Spring Song” also known as “Varsang”. Solo pieces will include a passionate cello concerto, composed by Edward Elgar, featuring Tayana Woodton; a strong trombone piece, composed by Launy Grondahl, featuring Andrew Menges; an emotional opera piece, composed by Georges Bizet, featuring Deanna M. Yoder; and a lyrical opera piece, composed by Johann Strauss II, featuring Erin Haafke.

In order to select musicians, MU holds a competition each year beginning in January, in which students play in front of a 3-4 judge panel at the university. They are then ranked and rated by a ten-point system. Whoever comes out at the top is selected to solo in the upcoming concert.

Wellsboro Home Page would like to recognize each of these students for his or her hard work. These talented musicians practice daily and are extremely committed to their instruments. We have high hopes for each student, and sincerely pray for their continued success. They truly deserve it.
