Concert Celebrates Naming of Sid & Mary Foulger School of Music
The WSU Jazz Combo will entertain guests upon arrival at the main entrance of the Browning Center.
- Chamber Orchestra Ogden, conducted by performing arts professor Michael Palumbo and WSU student Chin-Jung Hsieh, pianist, playing the first movement of the Ravel “Concerto in G”;
- WSU Chamber Choir, conducted by performing arts professor Mark Henderson;
- WSU student Fan-Ya Lin, pianist, performing Chopin’s “Ballade No. 4 Op. 52 in f minor”; and
- The grand finale, “Rhapsody in Blue” by George Gershwin, arranged for five pianos by Fan-Ya Lin and Jared Jaccard and performed by Lin, Jaccard, Eliza Taylor, Ling-Yu Lee and Maggie Whatcott.
This past spring, the university announced the $5 million pledge by Sid W. Foulger to endow a school of music at WSU. Millner then announced the establishment of the Sid & Mary Foulger School of Music in the Department of Performing Arts, and the WSU Board of Trustees unanimously voted to create it.
A pianist himself, Foulger has a close affinity with the performing arts, especially music. He is a firm believer in the transformative power of music and is committed to advancing opportunities for music education and achievement.
This formal naming ceremony and public celebration is free and open to the public. Children 8 and older are welcome to attend. This will be a gala affair and all are invited to celebrate the new Sid & Mary Foulger School of Music at Weber State University.
