Spring Concert
The Music Department showcased its annual Spring Concert on April 26. Students and staff displayed an unrivaled level of expertise in their respective instrumental and vocal performances as they created the sound of a new season. Audience members from the campus and the community were entertained and impressed by the talent they witnessed. 
 
The concert program included a selection of epinicia and concert marches, as well as excerpts from Mozart’s famed “Requiem,” accompanied by Professor Kent Smith on the organ. In addition to classical pieces, the choir also presented a more contemporary selection of worship music after the intermission, including modern worship songs such as “Stronger,” “Victor’s Crown” and “Blessed be the Rock.” Throughout the program, listeners noticed a unique emphasis on the royalty and majesty of God, with each song possessing a distinct and reverential feel.
 
Tradition played a prominent role in the Spring Concert. As is his custom, Lee Bilotta handed the baton to two seniors, Timothy Weaver and Karen Noble, from the Wind Ensemble, who each directed a song for their final performance. Bilotta also recognized senior Jennifer Lintz, who was highlighted on the trumpet during the final selection of “Bugler’s Holiday.”
 
This year’s Spring Concert proved to be a fitting celebration, as the College wrapped its 75th Anniversary reflections that concluded with Commencement on May 9. Each piece presented an opportunity for participants to look back on the provision and power of God and to rejoice in all that he has done through and for VFCC.
