Now that the cold winter nights are soon to give way to warmer days it’s time to shake off that winter fatigue. There’s no better way to get into the spring spirit than listening to some beautiful classical music.

Rhode Island College’s very own symphony orchestra provides a unique musical ensemble that will surely move you. They also rehearse once a week on Tuesday from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. All RIC students are welcomed to audition for this orchestra, even if they aren’t a music major. Students are encouraged to attend this seasonal orchestral performance and feel the musicality with every bone in their body.

Classical music is something to be cherished and enjoyed. As a prior base clarinetist myself, I know that the best part about attending an orchestral performance is being one with the music.

As the orchestra plays a song, the audience can feel the emotion and passion behind every note. It is truly a magnificent experience when a room of people listen to classical music. Filled with crescendos and diminuendos, staccatos and legatos, each song is unique.

Every piece is its own time capsule, capturing the emotion and expression of the composer on paper. Over decades and centuries it is passed down through teaching and practicing. Then, when a song is performed, it is shared with new ears. Classical music is ageless writing in a universal language.

The event specific program, including names of performers, titles of pieces and composers, will be updated and added to the RIC Events webpage once the event date is closer. It is advised that you bookmark your calendars and the event so you are up to date once the specific event information is released.

Come feel the vibration from your head to your toes. Let the warm notes wash away the bitter cold from the winter season. This is a free concert, with no need to make reservations or buy tickets ahead of time. It will take place from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in Sapinsley Hall, on Wednesday, April 12.

Experience this amazing event live and in person as you take in the music, one note at a time.
