TWU Department of Music to close Centennial celebration with concert


DENTON— The Texas Woman’s University Department of Music will conclude its yearlong Centennial Celebration with events that will coincide with TWU’s Homecoming/Reunion Weekend, April 16-17.

Music Reunion events include “TWU and the USO,” a panel of alumni recounting their travels with the service organization; Honors Recital; and Alumni Lounge, an opportunity for alumni to reconnect with former classmates and meet current faculty.

Events will culminate with the “Hail, Alma Mater! Hail!” Reunion Concert, scheduled at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 17 in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets. The concert will feature an alumni flute choir, Choraliers, and current and former students singing with the TWU Concert Choir. Former members of the Serenaders are invited to perform with the current TWU Jazz Ensemble. Tickets for the concert are $5 at the door.

“Music study was a part of things from the beginning of the university, but 1915 was the year in which music became a department. When we discovered that, we felt it was time to celebrate,” said Dr. Pamela Youngblood, professor and chair of the department of music and drama and co-coordinator of the TWU School of the Arts.
