KENNESAW, Ga.—The Kennesaw State University School of Music will presents its annual Collage Concert at the Dr. Bailey & Family Performance Center on Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. The concert is a collaborative effort featuring all KSU choirs, the orchestra, several faculty solo and ensemble performances, and the wind, jazz and percussion ensembles.
Assistant Professor of Choral Education
Alison Mann, who is coordinating the event, says, “The Collage Concert is a fast-paced musical experience that allows the audience to enjoy many styles of music in one setting,” and explains that, “The performance moves from one musical selection to the next without applause, resulting in an exciting show.”
The evening showcases each of the school's ensembles in a blend of vignette performances, spanning an assortment of musical styles and instrumentation. The lively ambiance created throughout this unique concert makes it difficult for Mann to pinpoint one aspect of the performance that she is most excited about. She explains, "It is truly spectacular to see so many students and faculty on stage at the same time achieving a unified musical goal.”
