NEWBERG, Ore. – The Newberg community is invited to a series of free concerts at George Fox University this month. All take place in the school’s Bauman Auditorium, with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.

The first of the three performances, a Jazz Dialogues Concert and lecture, is set for 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 7. This marks the school’s fourth annual presentation of the event, as the school’s Jazz Ensemble collaborates with the Department of Art and Design to create a one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary presentation and multi-media experience that will include live collage creation, drawing, animation and painting. Art and design students will participate, along with professors Tim Timmerman and Brandon Waybright.

The following week, on Friday, March 15, the school’s Symphony Orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky’s masterwork Romeo and Juliet Overture – Fantasy in its premiere concert with Dwayne Corbin as conductor. Student winners of the concert/aria competition will be featured, including Alex Hastings, playing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, and an aria sung by Bethany Fromdahl.

Finally, at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 21, George Fox will host an honors recital featuring the strongest applied students, chosen via a competition held with a panel of guest judges made up of professional musicians.
