The Waynesburg University Department of Fine Arts and Music Program will host the annual Spring Concert titled “Poems, Patterns & Polyphonies” Saturday, April 20 at 7:30 p.m. in Roberts Chapel. Admission is free and the public is cordially invited to attend.

“I love the spring concert each year because the ensembles have been through a full year of growth together and the combined efforts always seem to come to fruition in this concert,” said Dr. Rhonda DePriest, chair of the Department of Fine Arts and director of the Music Program at Waynesburg University.

Concert music will feature songs and arrangements from the Classical, Romantic and Twentieth-Century repertoire. The Lamplighters will highlight melodies with thought-provoking texts from the twentieth century. For the Symphonic Band, the Spring Concert represents a year-long study of wind band music from the medieval era to the twentieth century.

“Each semester, we have returning students who continue to show their desire to make music in their daily lives whether they are music degree seekers or not,” DePriest said. “That is one of the beautiful facets of the Music Program at Waynesburg.”

Doors will open at 7 p.m. No reservations are necessary for this event. For more information, call 724-852-3420.
