The concert will highlight the College Choir, Symphonic Band and Orchestra performing a variety of American and patriotic pieces, including classical, choral, contemporary, film, gospel, and Broadway. Immediately following the concert, a dessert reception will be held in the second floor Graham Commons while the Jazz Ensemble performs. There will also be a special reception for all Music Department & Ensemble students and Alumni on the same level. TICKETS can be purchased at nwc.edu/tickets, and one $10 ticket will admit you to both the concert and the reception! (For current students and faculty/staff, tickets are $8.) We look forward to seeing MANY of you here for this year’s reunion, reconnecting with old friends, colleagues and instructors.
