It’s been quite a start to the new academic year. Between getting all of our students enrolled, dealing with academic issues, launching a new ticketing system and policy for the school, not to mention three days of Hurricane Isaac. But with all of that said, we’ve had a great start to the year.
On Sunday, Katherine Kemler gave a fantastic faculty recital, and last night our orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Carlos Riazuelo, played their hearts out with a stunning rendition of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. On the same program, saxophonist Griffin Campbell gave a moving and lyrical interpretation of Paul Hayden’s Concerto for Alto Saxophone.
And tonight we close our opening week with the first of three recitals by our distinguished artist in residence Christopher O’Riley. I can’t think of a better way to launch the new year.
