“The partnerships we have within the musical community allow our campus to offer patrons top notch music events,” said Earl Holt, professor and department chair of music and dance at LSC-Montgomery. “Plus, our students work very hard to polish their skills and provide professional performances. It’s going to be a great semester.”
This fall, the community can enjoy performances by the college’s Jazz Ensemble, Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Concert Choir, and Chamber Singers. These events, along with weekly Recital Hour performances on select Fridays at 1 p.m., offer a chance to hear LSC-Montgomery music students perform for their peers, as well as highlight other noted performers on piano, saxophone, and more.
The college’s major event this fall is the Holiday Benefit Concert on Friday, December 5, which offers an evening of holiday song to help raise money for Interfaith of The Woodlands.
"I always look forward to performing in the Holiday Benefit Concert, because not only does the choir sing beautiful Christmas songs, but I get to participate in a large scale collaboration of the Concert Choir, Wind Ensemble, and Symphonic Orchestra,” said Hazel Fabon, an LSC-Montgomery music student and member of the college’s Chamber Singers.
In addition to the college’s continued partnership with Guitar Houston, a non-profit classical guitar organization, the music department is excited to have Conroe Piano Teachers Association offer recitals and workshops throughout the year.
