Westmont’s COVID-safe Concerts
Westmont Music kicked off its spring student showcase series with a pandemic-proof performance of Gabriel Fauré’s sublime “Requiem” in its annual Masterworks Concert. Westmont found a new space for its spring reading of the piece, with the widely spaced singers vocalizing from the bleachers high above the orchestra located on the track at the college’s stadium, the process providing a backdrop of the Montecito foothills for viewers for the recording that went live on April 2. Next up on Westmont’s streaming site is its annual Composer’s Concert, premiering several original compositions and pieces by Westmont students who were coached by Steve Butler that debuts on Friday, April 9. The Westmont Jazz Ensemble’s concert gets posted on April 16, with three more shows slated for later in spring. Visit www.westmont.edu for more.
