The York College Division of Music is proud to present another season of exciting musical performances.
The 2014-2015 academic year will feature recitals and concerts in two locations on the York College campus: the 700-seat, state-of-the-art Waldner Performing Arts Center (WPAC) and the 200-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 2014-2015 series will be highlighted by several exciting guest artist performances, which are made possible by a generous gift from the Boustead Family Foundation and a partnership with the Office of Intercultural Student Life and Global Programming.
Guest performers will include legendary drummer Tony Allen with the Chicago Afrobeat Project, jazz bassist Michael Formanek and his acclaimed quartet; pianist Jocelyn Swigger of Gettysburg College’s Sunderman Conservatory; and The Thirteen, a vocal ensemble specializing in Renaissance and Baroque music.
In addition, the 2014-2015 season will feature two exciting new ventures for the York College Division of Music. The York Chamber Players, YCP's faculty ensemble-in-residence, will celebrate its inaugural season with two performances of music by Viennese masters. In addition, the College’s first Early Music Festival, "Byrd to Bach," will showcase faculty and student ensembles along with guests The Thirteen.
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 YCP's distinguished music faculty, including James Colonna, Grace Muzzo, Zachary Levi and Jeff Stabley. The season will culminate in spring performances of Guys and Dolls.
