No Ticket Required; This Season at The Ohio State University

The Ohio State University's School of Music has a big season of music in store for the academic year. The Choral Department began the season with performances at the grand opening of Sullivant Hall as well as last week's stunning Choral Collage program, arranged by Dr. Kristina MacMullen, and the school's instrumental ensembles are following suit this week with two concerts to open their season. Perhaps the most exciting part of this semester's performances is the fact that most are being presented entirely free of charge, no ticket required.   This year's scheduled performances, both free and ticketed, can be found on the OSU School of Music's website at: http://music.osu.edu/events This week's performances include: Tuesday, October 14, 2014 - 8:00pm - 9:30pm:  Collegiate Winds, directed by David Hedgecoth Tonight's program will open the Collegiate Winds' season with the thrilling Königsmarsch by Richard Strauss, followed by Epinicion, John Paulson; October, Eric Whitacre; Three London Miniatures, Mark Camphouse; Eine Kleine Yiddish Ragmusik, Adam Gorb. These pieces offer an array of music for both contemporary and Romantic enthusiasts, ranging between the excitement of the opening march by Strauss to the subtle expression of tension and release found in Whitacre's work. In a brief interview, conductor David Hedgecoth also mentioned the humor of Adam Gorb's Eine Kleine Yiddish Ragmusik, which is sure to be a crowd-pleasing closing selection. The concert takes place in Weigal Auditorium, no ticket is required. Thursday, October 16, 2014 - 8:00pm - 9:30pm: University Band, directed by Phillip Day, with guest conductor Matthew King The University Band will present its first concert of the season featuring Declaration Overture, Claude T.
