Music faculty member Zach Collins and four students from the IUP Tuba and Euphonium Studio performed at two local high schools on Friday, November 18, 2016.
The IUP musicians visited with and performed for students at Franklin Regional Senior High School and Plum Senior High School.
Collins performed repertoire for solo tuba and the students performed works for tuba-euphonium quartet. The quartet is comprised of Mark Yamialkowski (senior, music education), Heather Yeager (junior, music education), Abby Weaver (senior, music education), and Logan Carnes (sophomore, music education and music performance).
The quartet performed compositions by Rossini, Bartles, Collins, Yeager and fellow IUP music student, Luke Hamilton. While at Plum, the students also sat in with the Plum Jazz and Symphonic Bands, providing feedback on their performance.
Collins and the students also visited with the students at Franklin Regional and Plum about opportunities for participating in music at the collegiate level.
