Hokies took the stage at Carnegie Hall on April 11, when 165 Virginia Tech students and several of their School of Performing Arts professors performed at the iconic concert venue.
Members of the Virginia Tech Wind Ensemble and the Virginia Tech Combined Choirs — the Chamber Singers, Tech Men, and Women’s Chorus — all performed at the concert, dubbed Hokies at Carnegie Hall. The students represented all seven of the university’s undergraduate colleges.
On their way north, the students stopped in Fairfax, Virginia, to present a concert at the George Mason Center for the Arts.
Dwight Bigler, director of choral activities at Virginia Tech, conducted the Combined Choirs, while Jonathan Caldwell, a visiting assistant professor of music, conducted the Wind Ensemble.
“To perform in Carnegie Hall was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our students,” said Caldwell. “On the world’s most famous stage, our students put on a magnificent performance and I could not be more proud. I just feel fortunate to have been a part of it.”
