Student soloists featured in College-Community Orchestra concerts

SUNY Oswego’s College-Community Orchestra will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 5, in Tyler Hall’s Waterman Theatre.

Outstanding students from the department will be featured as soloists. “Tim Lanigan, pianist, will perform the first movement of Schumann’s beautiful piano concerto,” said Juan F. La Manna, the orchestra’s director.

“Wojciech Milewski, clarinetist, will perform the first movement of Weber’s passionate first clarinet concerto. Jonathan Powers, baritone, will perform the aria ‘Non piu andrai’ from Mozart’s delightful opera, ‘The Marriage of Figaro.’ Baritone Tamar Tafari-Greene will perform Handel’s majestic aria ‘Total Eclipse’ from the oratorio ‘Samson.’”

The program also will feature pieces by Handel and Schubert.

Admission is free, but a suggested donation of $5 will support the SUNY Oswego Music Department’s Excellence Fund. Parking is free in campus lots on evenings and weekends.

People with disabilities seeking special accommodations should contact the music department at 312-2130.
