Concert brings together generations as well as musical groups

The Pittsburg Multigenerational Chorus is all about building bridges – between school and community and between the young and older generations. On Thursday, Oct. 29, the Multigenerational Chorus, the Pittsburg State University Department of Music, and more than 75 high school string players from Lawrence, Olathe, Fort Scott, Independence, Riverton, Parsons, Carl Junction and Pittsburg will perform a concert that demonstrates what beautiful things can happen when such disparate groups come together.

The Multigenerational Chorus, under the direction of Pittsburg High School Choir Director Susan Laushman, will perform a free concert at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29, in the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts. They will be joined by PSU string musicians as well as high school students participating in PSU’s annual String Madness Workshops, which are led by Raul Munguia, director of orchestras at PSU.

This is the seventh year for the Multigenerational Chorus, which was developed to bring community members into the high school vocal music classroom. The effort has received state and national recognition from the School of Character program. This is the second year for the Multigenerational Chorus to join with the PSU Orchestras in a concert.
