Music Program to host Chamber Works I

This will be the first of two Chamber Works concerts this semester

Waynesburg University’s Music Program will host Chamber Works I Thursday, Oct. 4. The concert will be held at noon in the Marsh Center. Admissions is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

The event is the first of two Chamber Works concerts held each semester. Dr. Ronda DePriest, professor of instrumental music and director of the Music Program, said each concert is unique from the rest. In the small ensembles, she said, each musician is responsible for their own performance, which allows them to focus on individual skill.

“Because the music featured in these concerts is for soloists and small groups, our student musicians grow personally and professionally through this avenue of musical expression,” DePriest said.

DePriest added that Chamber Works I is always popular with audience members, and she is excited to hear students perform this year’s repertoire.
