Robert McDuffie Center for Strings students to perform in Student Chamber Ensemble Concert

Nick Kirkpatrick, Staff Writer

The Student Chamber Ensemble Concert, which will take place May 1 at 3:00 p.m., offers Mercer students as well as the surrounding Macon community an opportunity to experience a performance from several of Mercer’s rising musicians. Students from McDuffie Center for Strings will be performing several chamber pieces, which they have been practicing since the beginning of the semester in groups as well on their own.

The chamber groups not only prepare diligently for these performances, but also for others in the community. The groups have performed for hospital patients; Daybreak, a local homeless shelter; and many other groups in the Macon community. Through their community outreach, these students offer the chance to hear classical music to people who often would not have had such an opportunity.
