This showcase of talent for WMU’s internationally recognized music program is a family-friendly benefit concert with all proceeds being applied toward music student scholarships.

Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 for seniors and $5 for students with a valid ID. They are available from Miller Auditorium online or by calling (269) 387-2300 or (800) 228-9858.

Produced by Greg Jasperse, conductor of the Gold Company, this event will showcase the polished ensemble playing and individual talents of the students, faculty, and ensembles in the School of Music. The concert will feature performances from all areas of the school and be a study in juxtaposition—large ensembles give way to soloists, chamber music precedes full choir. The concert will consist of two fast-moving sections, each performed without breaks for applause.
