Miami music ensembles to perform at Carnegie HallNov 28, 2011
Miami University's music ensembles take the stage in fall 2012 at one of
the most prestigious venues in the world — Carnegie Hall. It is
expected that 350 students will participate, with students from
virtually all academic majors represented.
Miami’s School of Fine Arts and the department of music recently signed an agreement to give a featured performance. Groups slated to perform include the Chamber Singers, Choraliers, Collegiate Chorale, Men's Glee Club, Miami University Symphony Orchestra, and the Miami University Wind Ensemble.
Music ensembles will perform in a special all-Miami University concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, in Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall, which seats 2,804. Ticket availability and other details will be announced as plans develop.
Plans are in motion for a "Miami University Weekend in New York" that will include a special menu of activities culminating with the Carnegie Hall performance.
James Lentini, dean of the School of Fine Arts, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity for a celebration that includes the whole university, and we are crafting plans to make this a major event for all Miami University alumni and friends. I congratulate the faculty, staff, and students of the department of music, whose continued commitment to excellence has allowed this opportunity to come to life."
This year, during the month of December, enjoy the music of Miami’s ensembles during their holiday concerts. Dates and times are located on the Fine Arts website calendar.
The department of music at Miami is listed as one of 25 "Strongest Programs" nationwide among all colleges (public and private) by the 2012 Fiske Guide to Colleges, and boasts successful graduates that include conductor Steven Reineke of the New York Pops.
Miami's Year of the Arts celebrates how the arts transform lives.
