Family and Friends Weekend Concerts

Family and Friends Weekend Concerts

Each October, the Music Department contributes two concerts to the festivities surrounding the Annual Family and Friends Weekend.

  • Friday night kicks off the fun with a free Jazz Ensembles concert at Chapin Auditorium, followed by a dessert reception.
  • On Saturday the Choral Ensembles and the Symphony Orchestra join forces to present a diverse selection of repertoire at Abbey Chapel, culminating with a combined work featuring the Family and Friends Choir.

All family members and friends are invited to come to a fun and engaging rehearsal to sing together and learn the combined piece the morning of the concert.
