A New Lens: Faculty Concert Series 2023-2024
By far, one of Powers’ greatest strengths is our faculty.
They are exceptional teachers and coaches, guiding hundreds of students towards their goals each year, but also incredibly talented musicians and performers outside of our school. In short, they bring a high level of excellence to everything they do.
Our faculty are also people who have their own unique interests, skills, talents, and things they wish to explore. Some are composing works for chorus or orchestra. Some are diving deep into the traditions of Irish tunes, early music, or Makam. Some are world-class concert pianists.
These interests and passions are just some of the possible ways that you and all of our students can experience and enjoy music today. These concerts are a unique opportunity to travel the world, explore different perspectives, genres, instruments, and cultures, listen through a different lens, and gain deeper insight into what music means to us all.
Enjoy the concerts, and maybe you’ll see your teacher with new eyes!
