Bryce Tempest, an Ithaca College music student from South Orange, NJ, performed in a concert at Lincoln Center.

Titled "The Exquisite Hour: MusIC of Love and Rapture," the April 29 performance featured the Ithaca College Choir, Chamber Orchestra and Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Calvin Wiersma, assistant professor of performance studies, and Janet Galvan, professor of performance studies.

"A Saturday night performance in one of our country's major performing halls is a big deal," said Galvan. "A very large audience is also a big deal. This is a life-changing experience, and our students rose to the occasion. I could not be more proud of each of the ensembles that performed."
