Olivet’s Department of Music
spotlights student conductors and performers in the 2013 Band Winter Showcase. Show times are Friday and Saturday, February 1 and 2, 7 and 9 p.m. both evenings, at Kresge Auditorium in the Larsen Fine Arts Center on Olivet’s campus.
This year’s production, “Fables,” tells the traditional fairy tale of a princess, portrayed by Lauren James
(junior, forensic chemistry major, Downs, Ill.), and a knight, portrayed by Josh Kurchinski (
sophomore, music major, Palos Heights, Ill.), through movement and music. The princess is kidnapped by a dragon — Trinity Evans
(sophomore, graphic design major, Calumet City, Ill.) — and is desperate to find a friend. The valiant knight marches in to save this damsel in distress.
Director for this production is Zachary Kohlmeier
(senior, music major, Saunemin, Ill.), assisted by Joy Matthews
(senior, music major, Dubuque, Iowa) and Stephanie Moore (
senior, social science major, Mount Pleasant, Mich.), conductors; and Paul Matthews
(sophomore, graphic design major, Dubuque, Iowa) and Paige Penrod
(sophomore, music education major, Saint Anne, Ill.).
