Wind Ensemble concert showcases Hilltopper talent

By Hannah Mason, Assistant Editor

To start with, I am not a musician. I have no specialized or technical knowledge about music, but I attended Wednesday night’s Odds and Evens Concert, performed by the West Liberty Wind Ensemble – and I was impressed. I think this concert showed just how tremendous and diverse the talent here on the hilltop is, and how events like these can bring lots of people—musicians or not—together.

The concert began at 7:30 p.m. the evening of Wednesday, March 23, in College Hall. The Wind Ensemble, with its 32 student musicians, two professors, and conductor and professor Patrick Garrett, started with a piece called “Mangulina.” Happily, I found that most of the seats around me were filled, with more people walking in as the show was beginning. I stopped counting heads when I got to 50.

Sunday, February 21st was the Hilltop Player’s final performance of She Kills Monsters. The cast and crew put a lot of hard work and dedication into pulling off nonstop high quality performances. Although a lot of work has gone into the play, that’s not to say that the cast and crew haven’t had a blast putting on the show.

As one of the ‘monsters’ in the play, I know the audience can only see so much, so I would like to share my unique perspective of the play. Come and take a unique look at some of the happenings behind closed doors and closed curtains as we bid farewell to a truly unique show!
