The Goshen College Symphony Orchestra (GCSO) will present its fall concert in Sauder Concert Hall on Friday, Nov. 1 at 7:30 p.m. The GCSO is an ensemble of Goshen College string, wind and percussion players, and is conducted by Christopher Fashun, assistant professor of music at the college.
Goshen College will host a musical work titled “Paraguay Primeval,” a collection of stories and images by Carol Ann Weaver. Based on the extraordinary story of Mennonites moving to Paraguay from Canada in order to retain their own schools, and from Russia to flee the Stalinist regime, the show follows their attempt to find a new “Promised Land” in the uninviting Paraguayan Chaco. The show will take place in the Music Center’s Rieth Recital Hall and is free and open to the public.
Nocturnal animals will be out and about at Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College during the 24th annual Enchanted Forest event on Oct. 25 and 26 from 7-8:30 p.m. This child-friendly and environmentally friendly evening consists of a guided hike by the light of lanterns to meet and hear from friendly nighttime animals in their natural habitat.
