Elon Music Ambassadors perform throughout northern Virginia
The Elon Music Ambassadors complete a six-day performance tour of northern Virginia with their newest program, Soul of the Cinema.
The Elon Music Ambassadors, under the direction of music faculty Virginia Novine Whittaker, recently returned from a six- day performance tour of northern Virginia.
The Elon Music Ambassadors, an elite ensemble consisting of select music majors, performed their newest program entitled Soul of the Cinema, for high school audiences. This exciting program was created by the ensemble members who arranged all of the music with guidance from their director, to spotlight each of the highly talented members of the group.
The goal of the Elon Music Ambassadors is to showcase the Elon music department and Elon University to high school audiences. This is the sixth performance tour that EMA has completed since its inception in Fall 2011. Over the past two years, EMA has visited 32 different high schools in five states, performing for approximately 4,000 high school students.
The performances were enthusiastically received by students and faculty alike. One high school directer summed it up by saying, "This put Elon University on the map for us!"
The Elon Music Ambassadors who performed on tour include Brandon Mitchell, Brian Magna, Wesley Rose, Michelle Warshany, Jesse Scarborough, Gabriel Estes, Marit Nelson, Marshall Rogalski, David Kerman and Justin Pierce.
