This is the celebration concert of Dr. Dorothy Crum’s 40 years of teaching! The concert features songs, arias, reminiscences and roasts performed by former and present students. Throughout the evening three of her students who died before their time will be honored: Annette Daniels, international opera singer; Nick Charvat, beloved choral director in USD 259; and Heather Muller, music theater performer (for whom the Heather Muller Black Box theater is named). The evening will close with two choruses-The Promise of Living by Aaron Copland conducted by former student Shawn Chastain and Make Our Garden Grow, by Bernstein from Candide, conducted by her former student Philip Taylor. Both works will be performed by all returning students (former and present) supplemented by singers from the Wichita Choral Society and the Westwood Presbyterian choir. Dr. Crum conducted the Choral society from 1984-1995 and still conducts the Westwood choir. A special gift in her eyes is that the final chorus “Make Our Garden Grow will be played by her friends and colleagues-the WSU instrumental faculty.
Some of the returning students who will be performing are: Carrie Cooley, Kimberly Eatman Dunn, Ted Dvorak, Trisha Garnes, Tracy Herron, Steve Hitchcock, Josh Lindholm, Megan Miller, Tyler Morris, Erin Mundus, Michelle Vardamann, Brian Yeakley.
