Music department holds beloved Mosaic Concert

(From left to right) Josh Griffin, sophomore music education major, Jacob Brooks, senior music performance major, and Jason Lewin, senior music education and performance major, share a cheeky smile during the Wind Ensemble’s performance of “Magnolia Star” by Steve Danyew. The three are also brothers of Phi Mu Alpha who performed “Ode,” a song from the fraternity’s repertoire at the Mosaic concert. 

Sept. 17 saw Washburn’s department of music holding the eighth annual Mosaic Concert at White Concert Hall.

The concert consists of a compilation of several different Washburn ensembles performing one piece before a new ensemble takes the stage. 

Some highlights were the Percussion Quartet performing an arrangement of Twenty One Pilot’s “The Run and Go” by sophomore music performance major Daniel Albertson and the Washburn Cello Ensemble’s performance of the “William Tell Overture” by Gioacchino Rossini. The latter was arranged by Washburn Director of Strings Studies, Erinn Renyer.
