JMU Symphony Honors Concert

April 21, 2013 Sunday @ 2 p.m. Concert Hall


Experience the excitement of the JMU Symphony Honors Concert as the JMU Symphony Orchestra accompanies the winners of the prestigious School of Music Concerto Competition. Majors from each of the five areas of the School (woodwinds, brass and percussion, strings, piano, and voice) compete in the competition. Two finalists are then selected by each area to compete in the finals for a coveted spot in the honors concert.

The JMU Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Robert McCashin, is the premier symphonic ensemble for the JMU School of Music. The Symphony presents a number of concerts on and off campus each year, and has performed regularly as the invited college ensemble for the Virginia Music Educators Association.

The Symphony is the only college orchestra nationwide selected to participate in the Carnegie Hall (NY) “LinkUp” concerts for young students.
