Tiffin University Musical Art’s program is presenting its annual ProMusic Festival on April 12 featuring members of the band, dance team, and choir.
High school students from all around Ohio come to Tiffin University to participate in this event and showcase their skills. The festival is two days long. The first day features the band; the second day features the choir. Each day, performances will be held in the Marion Center with a final performance at the Ritz Theater.
There will be an appearance by Chloe Feoranzo, a musician who plays for Postmodern Jukebox, who will judge the final performance as well as preform as the featured artist. “We are very excited to have her here at TU as a part of our ProMusic Festival this year!” said Ben Herrick, director of the TU band.
All TU students involved in band and choir are required to work this festival. The high school students work hand in hand with TU students, learning new skills and getting to know the art directors.
Leann Vandeveer, a junior at TU, has worked the festival the past three years and believes that it is a great experience for both college and high school students. “It’s truly great to have everyone from so many different places and backgrounds come together for this event,” she said.
At the end of each day there will be a performance from either the band or the choir. Students will be given feedback by the guest judges on their growth and performance at the end of the festival. Tiffin University uses this event to find recruitment's and spread information to every student who may be interested in attending this university.
