KENNESAW, Ga.—The Kennesaw State University School of Music presents its third annual Collage Concert on Saturday, Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. in the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center.
The two-hour concert is an overview of the extensive range and variety of music at Kennesaw State. Several large and small instrumental and vocal ensembles will perform three- to five-minute piece with no applause in between the presentations.
“The concert is a great way to showcase the School of Music,” said Michael Alexander, KSU director of orchestras and assistant professor of music, who helped organize the event. “The size and scope of our school is quite impressive when you see this concert.”
The variety of the repertoire ranges from a samba to a solo violin. Each musical performance takes place on a different area of the stage and also includes different lighting angles to complement the music. The groups come together for the final piece, the triumphal scene from Verdi’s “Aida.” This piece combines almost all of the parts of the School of Music, including both students and .
Students and of the School of Music also work together to create the overall effect of the Collage Concert. “The concert is a great way to demonstrate students and working together,” Alexander said. “I think that’s why this tends to be one of the most popular concerts for the School of Music.”
