Music faculty and students have an exciting year ahead of performances in band, jazz, orchestra, opera, choir and music theatre, a trip to Russia, and an opportunity to work with bass-baritone Sam Ramey, Guest Artist Fellow in Opera at Wichita State University.

The School of Music at Wichita State University has a great year of musical performances planned for the College of Fine Arts 2012-2013 season.

The school has begun the year with good news:

  • an autumn trip to Russia with the St. Petersburg Quartet and their students' Suprima Chamber Orchestra, the Lieurance Woodwind Quintet, and select faculty and students;
  • the addition of world-renowned opera star Sam Ramey, thanks to a privately funded Guest Artist Fellowship in Opera that starts his first year with six weeks of residency full of master classes and intensive one-on-one training;
  • and the addition of several new faculty members in key positions.

It's also the 50th anniversary of the school's popular Candlelight Christmas Concert, which shows off the WSU choirs.
As always, Wichita State's music students are the beneficiaries of all good news, opportunities and resources at the school.

They experience a seasoned faculty, year-round performance opportunities in band, jazz, orchestra, opera, choir and music theatre, and access to the state's largest ready-made audience in the greater Wichita metropolitan area.

Plan now for these fall performances; the spring 2013 schedule will be announced on the WSU news website in December.
