TWIN FALLS – The Music Department at the College of Southern Idaho will present two student concerts to kick off the fall semester. Both of these concerts are presented free of charge, although donations to the CSI Music Department Scholarship Fund at the Door are always appreciated.
CSI’s Music Department will present “Sunset Serenade” at 6:00 p.m. on October 15 on the patio between the Fine Arts Center and the Taylor Building with wellness music presented by Chamber Choir, Chamber Jazz, Madrigals and Big Band . Choral selections include works by William Bennet, Pepper Choplin, René Clausen and John Rutter. Jazz band selections include songs by Miles Davis, Bronislaw Kaper, and Richard Rodgers. Wear a jacket, bring a blanket and enjoy an hour of live music at sunset on our beautiful campus! Seating will be provided, but some guests may want to bring their own chairs and sit at a greater distance from others.
The CSI Symphonic Band returns with CSI Jazz at 7:30 p.m. on October 18 in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. After a one-year hiatus, the Symphonic Band is back in action, playing beautiful and moving music. A jazz band will open the concert, featuring the voice of Jo Ann Sanchez and performing jazz classics like “Blue Skies” and “Killer Joe”. The symphonic group’s repertoire will include pieces by George Gershwin, Sammy Nestico and John Philip Souza. The group will also perform Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto, featuring the young and talented Jacob Schilz.
