Glenville, WV – The Glenville State College Fine Arts Department Music Fest 2011 is scheduled for October 11th at 7:00 p.m. in the GSC Fine Arts Center Auditorium. The annual event serves as a showcase for all of the music groups open to students on the GSC campus. The night features performances from the GSC Music Department including the Jazz Band, Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Brass Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Woodwind Ensemble, Bluegrass Band, GSC Drum Line, and the GSC ‘Wall of Sound’ Marching Band.
“The most exciting part of the GSC Music Fest is that all the ensembles are represented in one evening. The different styles of music are as diverse as the students who each participate in at least two other groups. This is surely a night you do not want to miss,” said GSC Director of Vocal/Choral Studies and Assistant Professor of Music Teresa Dody, D.M.A.
Admission costs for the GSC Music Fest 2011 are as follows: $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for public school students and GSC faculty and staff, and free to all GSC students. All proceeds of the evening benefit the Bertha Olsen Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund was established in 1980 in honor of Bertha E. Olsen Professor Emeritus, who was a music teacher for 42 years at GSC. This scholarship goes to a well-deserving GSC music major.
