This performance is part of a tour that includes the ensemble’s selection to perform at this year’s Ohio Music Educators Association Conference in Cleveland, Ohio.

Other events this year include a residency with The Canadian Brass, the OU Wind Symphony performing in Carnegie Hall, and the Gala Alumni Festival in April.

One of America’s oldest public universities, Ohio University was established in 1804 in Athens, located in southeast Ohio. Along with its five regional campuses, the major research university has been on the forefront of accessible higher education, including being one of the first U.S. universities to confer a degree to an African American, John Newton Templeton (AB,  1828). Recent accolades for OU music alumni include the Broadway sensation Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, written by Dave Malloy (B.M. ’98).                                                                                                                                                   

Ganz Hall is located at 430 S. Michigan Ave., 7th Floor, in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Admission to the hall and performance is free and open to the public without tickets, with any government-issued ID.
