Tuesday, January 22 2013


MOSCOW, Idaho – Piecing together 75 unique and outstanding student musicians from the University of Idaho Lionel Hampton School of Music, the Feb. 1 Mosaic Concert will compose the big picture of music in a seamlessly choreographed, fast-paced performance.

The Mosaic Concert is set for 7:30 p.m. in the Haddock Performance Hall. The event is orchestrated by second-year voice professor Kyle Ferrill and by renowned jazz band and choir director, professor of music Dan Bukvich. The performance is free and open to the public.

“This special event is designed to showcase student chamber ensembles and soloists selected by school of music faculty to best represent each area of the school,” said Torrey Lawrence, associate director of the Lionel Hampton School of Music. “It’s an eclectic mix of new and old music, traditional classical music, as well as jazz and even includes several student compositions. The performance is fast-paced, and smoothly flows from one number to the next. It will be an exciting and unique event for sure.”

The event provides the audience an inspiring view into the unique and varied musical opportunities available in the Lionel Hampton School of Music, and a glimpse of the outstanding student performers the program has produced.

The one-hour concert will feature brass choir, strings, guitar, percussion, winds, piano, voice and the Vandaleers Concert Choir.

The event takes place the evening before the school of music’s annual audition day, when high school seniors visit campus to learn about the university’s music program and audition for admission to pursue music degrees.
