As classes and projects come to a close for the spring semester, the Department of Music and Theatre is gearing up with a series of concerts and events as part of its Spring Music Festival. Having started on April 26, the Spring Music Festival features a number of departmental ensembles ranging from choral to instrumental that showcase the breadth of student work and talent.
As the spring semester comes to an end, Xavier students are very busy completing final projects for their classes. For music majors and minors, these final projects come in the form of spring recitals.
The Xavier Music Department has hosted a number of vocal ensemble performances throughout each year as opportunities for performance for both singers and the audience receiving them. Most of the songs one hears require complex piano accompaniment. Jan Corrothers, an adjunct Xavier Music Department faculty member, does that and more.
