WSU College of Fine Arts has short but sweet December

Monday, November 24, 2008

It’s a short month for the College of Fine Arts at Wichita State University, but December offers an event-packed first two weeks.

The month gets off to a jazzy start in the School of Performing Arts with the WSU Concert Band and Jazz Arts II, followed by the Symphonic Wind Ensemble and then the WSU Symphony Holiday Pops Concert.

Lynne Davis will reprise Wednesdays in Wiedemann, after a November break. The Wednesday concerts are half-hour, after-work concerts on the Marcussen organ in Wiedemann Recital Hall by Davis, the Ann and Dennis Ross Endowed Faculty of Distinction in Organ.

From the School of Art and Design, the thesis work of WSU’s master of fine arts candidates Amber Stene and Nick Meyer-Hessler will be showcased at the Ulrich Museum of Art, along with current exhibitions.

Then there’s the always popular annual Candlelight Christmas Concert, which brings out the best in all participants as Wiedemann Recital Hall sparkles along with the voices led by choir director Tom Wine.
