Kaleidoscope Concert Showcases Every Instrument from the Schwob School of Music


COLUMBUS, Ga. — More than 230 students from Columbus State University’s Joyce and Henry Schwob School of Music will take center stage, left stage, right stage and even the balconies of the Bill Heard Theatre Saturday night for Kaleidoscope, a 70-minute, full-spectrum musical performance featuring instrumentals, vocal ensembles, chamber music and individual performances.

“Kaleidoscope showcases the artistry of all our students in one fast-paced evening,” said Scott Harris, director of CSU’s Schwob School of Music. “In little more than an hour you’ll experience a veritable world tour through music. The music making is thrilling, varied, uplifting - we promise to send you away with a song in your heart, a bounce in your step, and gratitude for the talent these young musicians bring to Columbus.”

This year, Kaleidoscope will conclude a week’s worth of activities celebrating CSU and the inauguration of President Chris Markwood. Markwood will be formally installed as CSU’s fifth president by the chancellor of the University System of Georgia onThursday, March 31.
