What Students Can Do

April 11, 2015

Concerto Winners 2015

I am just home from a delightful evening of great music with the DePauw Symphony Orchestra and their concerto winners– a concert featuring nine stellar students taking the soloist role before a full orchestra. Playing in a full orchestra can be intimidating–soloing in front of one can be terrifying–yet these students performed with grace and aplomb beyond their years. Opera arias, romantic concerti–even American standards were on display in an incredibly high-caliber performance by orchestra and soloist alike. The audience clearly loved every moment and was moved to clap and cheer and finally stand in homage to these incredible performers and incredible performances. It was a great night.

I am always amazed at what students can do. They are always more capable than we can even imagine and never cease to amaze with performances that enthrall.

What students can do this?

DePauw students can.

And they do.
