OCC’s Music Department held its third annual Percussion Suite Reunion Sunday, February 15 in the Recital Hall of the Academic II Building. Current students, family and friends attended the performance, which was organized by Music Professor Dr. Robert Bridge, instructor Jen Vacanti and Ashley Trudell, ’09. “To stand next to someone you used to play with years ago and remember the feelings of joy and stress, of preparation and the commitment it took is special,” said Trudell.
The reunion included a reception for alumni performers and current students. It was a great opportunity for past and present students to network and talk shop. “The alumni that return are all really excelling in areas of interest to our current crew,” said Bridge. “It’s great for them to have access to these performers to hear what they need to do following graduation.”
