Eighth Annual Prism Concert
April 28, 2017 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM | Location: Jackson Auditorium
For the final concert of the year, the TLU bands present the Eighth Annual Prism Concert, an an action-packed musical evening, featuring both bands, all three choirs, the jazz band, and many small ensembles and individuals in ways that you rarely have the opportunity to hear and see them.
This concert has a unique focus – to move the music around the auditorium and into the audience, as well as the traditional stage performance.
A Prism Concert is an interactive event in which the participating ensembles and soloists rotate with little or no pause throughout the program. Music is moved into the auditorium itself, performed from multiple sites utilizing all parts of the stage, the seating area, the pit and the balcony to bring the music more into the audience, inviting greater engagement between the performers and the audience, or between the performers themselves. This dynamic format allows the audience to experience the music in many different ways and from many different places. As one selection ends, the next begins, creating a sustained musical experience with varying textures and sounds that invite the audience to become immersed in the music.
The nature of the Prism Concert is interactive, evocative, sometimes humorous, and varying greatly in mood and style. This concert also incorporates music of all styles and genres –band, choir, strings, and chamber ensembles of all types – woodwinds, brass, and percussion.
