Anne Arundel Community College’s Music Department will perform spring concerts in the next three weeks, but with perhaps a little more experience this year. More than 70 students and faculty in AACC’s music program performed in six concerts in Austria during their visit to that country over the college’s March spring break. Douglas Brandt Byerly, chair of performing arts, said the trip was life altering for many in the group and all felt they had learned something from that experience that will add to their individual performances.
Upcoming performances include:
April 26 at 8 p.m. The AACC Symphony Orchestra Spring Concert, “Made in America,” features the world-renowned guitar duo Frank Vignola and Vinny Raniolo, who play, sing and dance a variety of popular classics including works by Barber and Copland. Also in the spotlight will be AACC faculty member Gregory Pascuzzi. For information about the orchestra, visit the AACC Orchestra
