SU Arts Minute - December 11-17, 2017
Welcome to Salisbury University’s Cultural Calendar Highlights for the week of December 11.
Students in SU’s PRESTO performing arts outreach program share their talents in performance on Tuesday, December 12. They range in age from 5 to adult and in skill level from beginner to advanced, in piano, violin, viola, cello, percussion and guitar, and in voice works.
This semester’s final “Discover SU” tour, through the University’s Center for Extended and Lifelong Learning, takes guests on a historical walking tour of Holloway Hall, led by University Archivist Ian Post. Opened in 1925, the building is the oldest on SU’s campus, recognized as a landmark by the Maryland Historical Trust.
The Salisbury Youth Orchestra performs its annual Winter Concert on Thursday, December 14. Directed by Martha Mancuso and Dr. Jeffrey Schoyen, featured selections include Schubert’s “Unfinished Symphony,” melodies from the Broadway hit Hamilton and holiday favorites including “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
A closing reception and awards ceremony for the graphic design portion of SU’s 57th biannual Senior Art Exhibition is Friday, December 15.
Looking off campus, that evening Dr. John Wesley Wright of the Music, Theatre and Dance Department solos at New York’s Lincoln Center during the 50th-anniversary performance of the National Chorale’s popular “sing-in” of Handel’s Messiah. The show features a chorus of approximately 3,000 audience members. For tickets visit nationalchorale.com.
