The talents of the students of Delaware State University’s Department of Music will be showcased during two concerts on April 22-23.
The DSU host its annual Spring Concert at 7 p.m. Friday, April 22, featuring its Concert Choir and Concert Band in evening performances in the Education and Humanities Theatre on the Del State Campus.
The Concert Choir will be under the direction of Dr. Derrick Thompson, University Choral Director. The Concert Band will be conducted by Sidney Sessoms, University Director of Bands.
The Concert Band will also perform a selection with special guest conductor Ivory Brock, who was the Director of Bands at Delaware State College in the 1980s.
The DSU Jazz Ensemble will host “Jazz on the Lawn” from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, in the Outdoor Amphitheater on the campus of DSU Downtown (formerly Wesley College). The Jazz Ensemble will be under the direction of Vincent Adkins, Assistant Director of Band, and will feature special guest jazz artists John Robertson and Rosemary Rainey, a husband/wife duo from Atlanta, Ga.
The Outdoor Amphitheater – so named by the former Wesley College – is actually a courtyard area outside of the Main College Building on the N. State St. side.
The University invites the public to bring their lawn chairs to the Jazz on the Lawn event and enjoy an afternoon of “America’s oldest art form” – jazz music.
Both events are free and open to the public.
