The Department of Music at Nazareth College presents the 2011 Prism Concert on Sunday afternoon, March 6 at 3:00 p.m. in the Callahan Theater of the Nazareth College Arts Center. Building on the terrific success of the last year’s “sold out” inaugural Prism Concert, the department has put together another event guaranteed to showcase performances of the widest diversity and interest. This event is free of charge, but tickets will be required. They are available by contacting the Nazareth College Arts Center Box Office at (585) 389-2170.
A prism concert presents its program without any interruption whatsoever, lasting no more than one hour. The music flows seamlessly from piece to piece, shifting the audience’s attention between different parts of the stage and various locations throughout the hall. The name originated from the traditional concept of a prism, in which light is refracted into its infinite spectra. Here a program of music displays a non-stop multiplicity of possibilities, combinations, and tonal colors.
Every undergraduate Nazareth music major will perform in this program. Under the organization and direction of Dr. John Hain, featured Department large ensembles will include the Nazareth Band, Symphony Orchestra, Men’s and Women’s Choruses, Chamber Singers and Jazz Ensemble, along with the Flute Ensemble, Saxophone Quartet, Brass Quintet, Cello Ensemble and the Faculty Woodwind Quintet. Faculty artists will include sopranos Soo Yeon Kim and Kimberly Upcraft-Russ and flutist Liisa Ambegaokar Grigorov.
