The Wright State University Chamber String Orchestra performed publicly for the first time this academic year during a special performance on Oct. 6 in the Student Union Atrium.
The open space of the Student Union Atrium allowed performers and audience members to be physically distanced while enjoying the orchestra’s performance.
“We have not performed in eight months,” said Jackson Leung, professor of music. “To be able to make music together is one of the most important things that musicians do.”
The performance featured over a dozen musicians with Leung serving as conductor.
“It’s nice to be in the Atrium, and I wasn’t expecting that many people,” said Gabriella Erbacher, a senior music performance major who participated in the concert.
