Kaleidoscope 4

300 student musicians

14 ensembles

75 unforgettable minutes of music

Saturday, October 5, 2013 – 8 p.m.
Fox Cities Performing Arts Center

First performed in 2006, Kaleidoscope's non-stop, 75-minute format provides a rapid-fire musical spectrum running the gamut from traditional Russian choral music to Latin orchestral rhythms to 11 bassoons churning out memorable Beatles classics.

“Kaleidoscope is designed to showcase the broad variety and musical depth of our conservatory ensembles and chamber groups in an all-inclusive, musical extravaganza and this year’s performance promises to do just that,” said Phillip Swan, co-director of choral studies at Lawrence and the coordinator of this year’s concert.  

The most comprehensive music program Lawrence will present during the 2013-14 academic year, Kaleidoscope spotlights both large ensembles (Symphony Orchestra, Concert Choir, Gamelan Cahaya Asri, Wind Ensemble, Opera, Jazz Ensemble) and chamber groups (bassoon ensemble, voice/cello ensemble, string quartet, piano/oboe/viola, saxophone/marimba, piano duet). Providing a joyful exclamation mark on the evening will be an excerpt from the finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.


The 2013 Kaleidoscope Concert is sponsored by The Appleton Group. Lawrence University is deeply grateful for its generous support of this unique arts showcase.
