This concert, featuring both Denison students and staff, is free and open to the public.
Rosenberg, instructor of oboe at Denison since 1983, said, “the music department has seen an influx of talented students, and this is reflected both in the level of performance and degree of difficulty of the repertoire being performed.” He described the concert as “a delightful mix of music for woodwind ensembles, including flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon, with a few strings added to the blend on several pieces.”
The concert will feature the following Denison students: Zoe Ashmead (Grand Rapids, Mich.), Lydia Boote (Deerfield, Ill.), Alyssa Christian (Stonington, Conn.), Ethan Cohen (Signal Mountain, Tenn.), Sarah Edgerton (Shaker Heights, Ohio), Courney Flynn (Avon Lake, Ohio), Jane-Coleman Harbison (Nashville, Tenn.)
