Dear School of Music Community,
Welcome to our spring concert season at Shepherd University. For the past semester, we’ve enjoyed sharing our performances with you “live” via our YouTube channel. These broadcasts have provided us the opportunity to share the outstanding music the students and faculty of the School of Music have continued to make safely through the COVID-19 pandemic.
This spring semester, the large ensembles will present two mixed ensemble broadcasts, on April 9th and May 7th. These broadcasts will feature performances by our choral groups, wind ensemble, and jazz ensemble. Subscribe to our YouTube channel and join our mailing list for updates and links to specific performances.
As a special treat, the Shepherd University Wind Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Scott Hippensteel will present a live-streamed concert from the Frank Center on March 5th. This concert celebrating St. Patrick’s Day will feature Scots-Irish music and special guest pipers performing with the band.
We will round out our Salon Series this semester with two programs. On February 5th, Dr. Candice Mowbray, guitar professor and alumna of the SoM, will present an eclectic program of music featuring several of her musical friends: Anita Thomas, Danny Webber, Dr. Rob Tudor, Dr. Bobb Robinson, and Dr. Julianna Hayward. To conclude the Salon Series, Dr. Yu-Hsuan Liao, clarinet professor David Drosinos, and cello professor Camilo Perez-Mejia present a piano trio program on April 1st. This event will be live-streamed from the W. H. Shipley Recital Hall and will feature our new Steinway B piano graciously donated by the Shepherd University Foundation. As always, we offer our deepest appreciation to Jefferson Security Bank for continued support of the Salon Series at Shepherd. They are amazing partners in bringing these wonderful performances to you.
The students, faculty, and staff of the School of Music are filled with hope that very soon we will be able to welcome audiences back into the Frank Center. We look forward to sharing the special energy that comes from live music-making together. Until then, please plan to join us virtually for these fantastic performances. We appreciate your continued support of our amazing Shepherd music students. We look forward to performing for you: our friends and family.
“See” you at the next concert!
Director, School of Music
