Once again, the Rowan County Senior High School Performing Arts Center will open its doors to host a free special concert event with music provided by the concert bands from Rowan County Senior High School and Morehead State University. The concert will take place on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 7:30 PM.
The RCSHS Concert Band, under the direction of Kevin Christie, will once again join forces with the Morehead State University Concert Band, under the direction of Dr. Susan Creasap, to perform a concert titled “War and Peace.” The concert will feature a variety of patriotic pieces as well as music composed to commemorate wartime events. The stirring music is being presented to honor our troops as well as those who have been touched by war.
The master of ceremonies for the 3rd annual musical event is someone who is closely connected to both Rowan County Schools and Morehead State University – Mr. Bill Redwine. Mr. Redwine serves as assistant vice-president for auxiliary services at Morehead State University and he is also the chairman of the Rowan County School Board.
“While I am not a musician, I do understand that, in a concert, the instrumentalists must work together, form partnerships, so to speak. This concert is a wonderful example of the partnership that has been built between Rowan County Schools and Morehead State University. I applaud Kevin Christie and Dr. Creasap for making this happen year after year.”
Along with the numerous students in both the high school and university concert bands for the “War and Peace” concert, several members of Morehead State University’s music department faculty will also be featured. Bring your family and friends to the RCSHS Performing Arts Center on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 7:30 PM to hear the MSU/RCSHS Concert Band experience. It is sure to be an evening to remember – an evening of great music.
