The fifth annual Lycoming College Music Department Gala will showcase select music ensembles on Friday, April 6, at 7 p.m. at the Community Arts Center in downtown Williamsport. The event is free and open to the public.
Included in this year’s Gala will be the Lycoming College Chamber Choir, consisting of 25 select students, and the Concert Choir, the College’s full choir, both under the direction of Daniel J. Hall, assistant professor of music at Lycoming College. Additionally, the Gala will feature the College’s Concert Band, comprised of approximately 55 woodwind, brass and percussion students, as well as the Lycoming College Community Orchestra, featuring students, faculty and other professional musicians from the region. Both ensembles are under the direction of William Ciabattari, associate professor of music and chair of the department.
A diverse selection of repertoire for this year’s event will include a performance of John Rutter’s “Gloria,” with special guest, The Williamsport Chamber Choir and Orchestra, joining the music department for this performance. The Williamsport Chamber Choir and Orchestra is also under the direction of Hall.
“The strength of this concert is in the variety of ensembles and repertoire,” said Ciabattari. “We are so pleased to be able to offer this concert again, featuring the many different things that our department produces.”
