Notes of Fall

Check out an October on-campus concert.
Notes+of+Fall

It is autumn, and we are officially in October’s music season on campus. With the cold weather upon us, students are able to enjoy their fall nights with good company in student-focused concerts. 

Three different shows of varying genres will be presented in the Performing and Visual Arts Center (Building 22). 

Anthony Cuietta, the music department’s chief technician, described the concerts as “super inspiring, emotionally impactful, and lots of new levels of professionalism.” 

Looking forward, we can expect to see “vocal groups and diverse offerings,” Cuietta said. 

For the Griffin Community Concerts series, Duo Vivace – a combination of violin, viola and keyboards – will perform “Devilishly Good Duets: Music for Halloween” on Oct. 25 at 6 p.m. Ticket prices cost $15 for the general public; $10 for Grossmont employees, veterans and seniors, and $5 for students.

The Music Department will also be presenting the second performance of Grossmont’s Symphony Orchestra, featuring Oboist Michael Gaby, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $15 for seniors and military, and $5 for students.

Jazz enthusiasts can look forward to the Monday evening Jazz and Afro-Cuban live concert on Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. The concert will be directed by Derek Canon and Latin Music Artist Manny Cepeda. Admission is $15 for general, $10 for seniors and military, and $5 for students.

Excitement is in the air for those attending and performing. Brandon Huynh, a guitarist in the orchestra, said he has practiced tirelessly to be precise in achieving great performances for the audience, and his family and friends. 

“It was difficult, plenty of work to go over, but everyone was supportive,” Huynh said.
