FCSAA Winter Music Symposium - 2013
During the end of the month the Florida College's State Activities Association sponsered the annual Winter Music Symposium which was held at the beautiful new music building and facillities at the University of South Florida. Over the three days that began on January 24, our students participated in intense ensemble rehearsals, three concerts given by the artist winners, the USF ensembles and the symposium ensembles. The USF School of Music was amazing as they hosted over 350 students from all over the state.
Our own Josh Cessna won top honors in the piano division with his performance of Franz Liszt's "Fantasy on Themes from Rienzi" (Wagner). His performance had all of the symposium students rising to their feet in a spontaneous standing ovation as he finished the piece.
