In the final month of classes, before the dreaded finals week, the music department holds a concert on almost every night. Not only does this allow the music students to display their talents, but it also gives students all over campus the opportunity to escape from their stresses for a little while.
“[Going to these concerts] gives an opportunity to get away and relax, and I think this ability to do so will definitely help us prepare for finals,” said Darryn Taylor. “I love going to concerts here at Snow College because the people are so passionate about what they do.”
Music students have been preparing and working hard for these concerts, and they are excited to share their talents with the school. “I know that all the groups have been working hard, and they sound great,” said Gray Adams, who plays trumpet in the symphonic band and works as a technician for the concerts, “people should really come to the concerts.”
“You can never make the statement that there’s nothing to do in Ephraim. We have something [almost] every night” said Dr. Vance Larsen, chairman of the music department, “just come on over and hear our talented students play.”
These concerts will be held in the Jorgenson Concert Hall in the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts. The vast majority begin at 7:30 pm, and admission is free with a student ID.
