Celebrating Musical Performance: From Tchaikovsky to de Meij

Franklin & Marshall College’s Brian Norcross conducted a different type of community conversation before a large crowd during the College’s Common Hour March 23. Rather than the typical discussion held in Mayser Gymasium each Thursday classes are in session, Norcross, senior director of instrumental music and conducting studies, led the 75-member F&M Orchestra, celebrating its founding by Norcross 30 years ago, and the 50-member F&M Symphonic Wind Ensemble, celebrating its 80th anniversary. They performed Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo and Juliet,” and de Meij’s “Symphony No. 1” from the “Lord of the Rings” film. Here is a photo essay of their presentation.
