West Chester Arts Weekend starts today! Check out http://wcupa.edu/cvpa/artsweekend.aspx for our full list of events this weekend and to reserve your spot in free interactive classes as well as WCU’s own Pitch Perfect!
For those of you that don’t know by know, my name is Paul Feldman, and I am Super Senior and Double Major in Instrumental Music Education and Instrumental Music Performance with a Jazz Studies Minor. My major instrument is trumpet and I currently student teach, which is much of the reason why people that I do and don’t know haven’t seen me that much.
Anyways, I wanted to inform you of a performance opportunity that takes place this Saturday, April the 25. The event is called the Veterans Educational Forum, and the event is run by the WCU Student Veterans Organization. They would need about 45 minutes of music for the opening ceremony and Presentation of the Colors (agenda is attached). I was planning on playing Reveille, Taps, the National Anthem, as well as all of the service branch songs after each representative presents a speech. However, it is still not too late if you have any patriotic solos, duets, trios, chamber pieces, or ensemble pieces that you have either been working on, could do easily on your own or with a small group of people or by yourself. (“America the Beautiful”, “Yankee Doodle”, etc.)
