29th Annual Music Showcase Honor Weekend

by Shannon Eighmey, Public Relations Writer

Each year Cedarville University welcomes hundreds of high school band, choir and orchestra students from around the country to its “Music Showcase” honors weekend. This year’s showcase will be February 12-14. The “showcase concert” will be February 14 at 2 p.m. in the Dixon Ministry Center.

The students will learn from Michael DiCuirci, senior professor of music and conductor of the Honor Band; Dr. Lyle Anderson, senior professor of music and director of the Honor Choir; and Carlos Elias, professor of music and conductor of the Honor Strings. Through this weekend workshop, the high school students will be challenged to develop their musical talents.
“Over the past 29 years, Music Showcase has given several thousand high school students an opportunity to perform at a university level,” said Anderson. “The students interact with each other and Cedarville students and faculty to learn new musicianship skills.” These students have the privilege of experiencing the magnificent rehearsal and recital halls of the Dixon Ministry Center, one of the finest music facilities of any Christian university in the nation.
