The Fairmont State University School of Fine Arts Department of Music celebrates the spirit of musical connection with its Spring Music Gala at 7:30 p.m. May 3, in Colebank Hall.

Admission is free to the performance with a donation to The Soup Opera. Representatives will be at the concert to collect canned goods and other donations. For information, call 304-367-4219.

Featured during the evening's performance is "Green Hills of Magic," a new piece for wind ensemble with live narration. The work connects the extraordinary musicianship of Fairmont State's music students along with four short folk tales of a folklorist and storyteller.

Closing the evening's performance will be a spectacle of nearly 100 musicians as the Fairmont State
Wind Ensemble, Collegiate Singers and Community Chorus join forces to celebrate the arts at Fairmont State. The program also features Fairmont State's Collegiate Singers who recently toured Florida.

Also on the program will be performances by select students whose outstanding skill level show the
height of musical attainment at Fairmont State. Performances include guitar duo Benjamin Male
and Sean Lee, the Fairmont State Piano Ensemble, soprano Briana Pudsell, saxophonist Cecil Lopez,
marimbist Elizabeth Bertovich and percussionists David Allen and Michael Robinson.
