Lycoming College will continue its fall schedule with two performances at the Williamsport Community Arts Center (CAC) in early November. The Lycoming College Concert Band along with the Lycoming College Community Orchestra, and the Lycoming College Choirs, will perform Nov. 3-4. Both events are free and open to the public.

Under the direction of William Ciabattari, Ph.D., associate professor of music at Lycoming College and chair of the department, the Lycoming College Concert Band and Community Orchestra will share the stage during its first full concert at the CAC since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic on Wednesday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m. at the CAC. The Community Orchestra will be performing Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8, a masterpiece of the late 19th Century. The Concert Band will perform works by J.S. Sousa, Alfred Reed, Leo Delibes, and George Gershwin.

The Lycoming College Choirs, under the direction of Daniel Hall, D.M.A., will present a fall concert featuring works from a variety of styles and historical periods on Thursday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m. at the CAC. The central theme of the concert is one of memory, memorialization, and homecoming. Selections hail from South Africa, Ireland, Canada, Israel, Germany, Spain, and America. The community is invited to listen to historical music from composers such as Schubert and Scarlatti, and contemporary selections from composers such as Ysaye M. Barnwell and Dan Forrest.

In accordance with the CAC policies, all attendees must wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

The Lycoming College music program offers an enriching curriculum that is bolstered by numerous performance and professional opportunities, and a flexible course structure allows students to design their own path to match their career goals and interests.
