Weston Crowe, a resident of Elizabethton, was recently named to the 2020 Bob Jones University Symphony Orchestra (BJUSO). Crowe is a Senior majoring in Music at BJU.
The mission of the BJUSO, one of three orchestras at BJU, is to inspire artistic excellence in performance as a display of God’s glory and His gifts to man. Auditions are open to all students at the university, regardless of academic major.
“I’m proud of our student musicians,” said conductor Dr. Michael Moore, chair of the Division of Music. “I will always be grateful for the privilege to make music with these young artists.
The 43-member symphony has a long, rich tradition of presenting masterworks from the orchestral repertoire. Students also have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of chamber works, opera, musical theatre, symphonic pops, and sacred music literature.
The 2020-2021 season’s performances include Concerto and Aria Contest Showcase Concert featuring the 2020 winning soloists performing with Beethoven’s 6th Symphony (Oct. 9).
Located in Greenville, S.C., Bob Jones University provides an outstanding regionally accredited Christian liberal arts education purposely designed to inspire a lifelong pursuit of learning, loving and leading.
