2013 Star-Spangled Spectacular packs the Campus Green
First concert of Starlight series delivers eclectic music and brilliant fireworks

 

The 2013 Starlight Summer Concert Series kicked off on June 28 with the Star-Spangled Spectacular, featuring the Georgia Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michael Alexander, interim director of Kennesaw State University's School of Music.

 

The concert drew a full crowd to KSU's Campus Green, where families gathered on chairs and blankets and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the evening. Concessions were available for purchase and many of the groups gathered on the lawn enjoyed a picnic dinner.

 

The concert featured an eclectic selection of music, ranging from traditional patriotic tunes to songs made famous from "Les Misérables" and the "Indiana Jones" films. Oral Moses, who recently retired after 28 years of teaching music at KSU, also accompanied the orchestra in singing a selection of American spirituals before the concert ended on a high note: a cavalcade of familiar Sousa tunes playing to a flash of fireworks.
