The Lycoming College music department announces its 7th annual Music Gala, showcasing select ensembles from the College, on Saturday, April 23, 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 Concert Choir and Chamber Choir, performing works by Brahms, Schubert, Sweelinck, Stroope, Gjeilo, and more, under the direction of Daniel J. Hall, assistant professor of music at Lycoming. Under the direction of William Ciabattari, associate professor of music and chair of the department, the Lycoming College Community Orchestra, featuring students, faculty and other professional musicians from the region, will perform Symphony in D minor by Cesar Franck. The College’s band will perform works by Markowski, Leemans, and others.

“Our annual Music Gala celebrates the culmination of a year’s worth of hard work by every member of our choirs, orchestra, and band,” said Ciabattari. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for the community to listen to outstanding musical performances and take advantage of what the College has to offer.”

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.
