Music Performances

Music Cover Photo The York College Division of Music is proud to present another season of exciting musical performances. The 2013-2014 academic year will feature recitals and concerts in two locations on the York College campus: the 730-seat, state-of-the-art Waldner Performing Arts Center (WPAC) and the 220-seat, acoustically perfect DeMeester Recital Hall (in Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall, home of the Department of Communication and the Arts).

All of the following concerts and recitals are free and open to the public. The 2013-2014 series will be highlighted by several exciting guest artist performances, which are made possible by a generous gift from the Boustead Family Foundation. Guest performers will include So Percussion, a cutting-edge quartet that has worked closely with many of the world's preeminent modern composers; and the Jupiter String Quartet, a prize-winning group that is currently the Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Illinois.

In addition, several of York College's extraordinary faculty artists will present solo and collaborative recitals, including trumpeter Jon Cresci, percussionist Malavika Godbole (with her group, Mobius Percussion), violinist Jennifer Herrera-Mullar, flutist Alicia Kosack, mezzo-soprano Erin Lippard, saxophonist Susan Loy, pianist Kenneth Osowski, and others.

As always, York College's talented student ensembles will grace the stages, including the Wind Symphony, Chorale, College Community Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, and Groove Ensemble. Each of these ensembles will be led by a member of York College's distinguished music faculty, including James Colonna, Grace Muzzo, Zachary Levi, and Jeff Stabley. The season will culminate in a spring performance of the musical The Boy Friend (directed by Erin Lippard).
