Putting the Pieces Together at UI Mosaic Concert

Wednesday, January 29 2014

MOSCOW, Idaho – Piecing together 75 unique and outstanding student musicians from the University of Idaho Lionel Hampton School of Music, the Mosaic Concert will fill Haddock Hall Friday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. The performance is free and open to the public.

The concert will illustrate the big picture of music in a seamlessly choreographed, fast-paced performance that highlights talented individuals and ensembles within the school.

“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 one-hour concert will feature brass, strings, guitar, percussion, winds, piano and voice. It also provides the audience an inspiring view into the unique and varied musical opportunities available in the LHSOM, and a glimpse of the outstanding student performers the program has produced.

The event also serves as an opportunity to entice prospective students. The concert is performed the evening prior to the school’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.
