Music-O-Rama: An Eclectic Musical Celebration at the Rozsa Oct. 4

HOUGHTON -- The Rozsa Center will explode with an eclectic celebration of music as Michigan Tech’s Superior Wind Symphony, Jazz Lab Band and Concert Choir converge for Music-O-Rama at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets, which are $13 for adults and $5 for youth, can be purchased at the Rozsa Center, through the ticket office at 487-2073 or online.

Music-O-Rama offers a broad and energetic array of music for all tastes and ages. Chamber Choir Director Jared Hendrickson explains that it is an expansion of last year’s popular Band-O-Rama.

"This fast-paced concert is a really exciting way to become acquainted with all the musical aspects of Michigan Tech. This will be lots of fun for the audience as they’re surrounded by different musical styles."

Michigan Tech’s Superior Wind Symphony is the University’s premier wind ensemble. Its concerts traditionally offer symphonic thrills, innovative programming, fruitful collaborations and exciting premieres. The award-winning Jazz Lab Band is made up of 20 musicians from throughout the country and specializes in jazz from all eras, plus Latin jazz, funk, fusion, blues and original compositions. The Concert Choir is a 60- to 80-voice ensemble of faculty, staff, students and community singers performing a wide variety of music -- from Gregorian Chant to new works. Together, they will offer a vibrant mélange of styles and sounds.
