Students in the School of the Arts Music Department have something to show you: the fruits of their labor!
Be part of the audience as three music ensembles take part in two concerts this month. The Handbell and Guitar Ensemble Concert is March 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall, and the Jazz Ensemble Concert is March 28 at 2:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall lobby.
The first concert features the Brookhaven College handbell and guitar student music ensembles and Ricky Reeves, humanities professor and professional clarinetist. Dance music will rule the night, as the musicians entertain the crowd with a myriad of classics, including “St. Louis Blues,” “Baby Elephant Walk,” “American Patrol” and “Just a Closer Walk.”
The rhythmic music of the jazz ensemble, featured in the second concert, is a combination of a variety of media: cello, voice, piano, keyboard, guitar, bass and drums. In the concert’s lineup is a variety of well-known songs, including “My Favorite Things,” “Take the A Train,” “Summertime,” “Libertango” and “Cantaloupe Island.” Come and get free coffee!
The Brookhaven College handbell ensemble, the only college choir of its kind in Dallas, is led by Bonnie Riddle, adjunct music faculty. Carlo Pezzimenti, adjunct music faculty, leads the guitar ensemble. The jazz ensemble is led by Jisun Choi, adjunct music faculty.
Both concerts are free and open to the public, so share the invitation with your friends and family. The Performance Hall is in Building C, near the center of campus.
