Music Students Take the Stage at Lincoln Center
On April 15, 350 students from Ithaca College’s School of Music will take the stage to perform Giuseppe Verdi's classic Requiem at Lincoln Center’s famed Avery Fisher Hall.
Members of the choir, chorus, women’s chorale, and symphony orchestra will travel from Ithaca to New York City to bring this powerful music to life under the direction of professor and conductor Lawrence Doebler. Faculty soloists David Parks and Randie Blooding will also be featured. Jeffery Meyer, assistant professor in the school of music, will lead the orchestra in a performance of the Tragic Overture by Johannes Brahms. A free preview concert will take place in Ford Hall shortly before the group heads to NY.
This is not the first time IC music students have performed at Lincoln Center; the School of Music has sponsored eight concerts there since the 1970s. Most recently, students performed Carl Orff’s opera Carmina Burana.
