The much-anticipated, annual Collage Concert never fails to amaze, with its captivatingly distinctive format featuring the incredible range of SMTD ensembles and programs performing one riveting work after another without pause. It’s a non-stop and exhilarating evening of virtuoso performances you won’t want to miss.
Created in 1977 as a special presentation for the Midwestern Music Conference, Collage has since become an annual signature event of the School of Music, Theatre & Dance season. The event’s design is unique, featuring all ensembles and departments of the School performing one arresting work after another in rapid-fire order. Large ensembles alternate with soloists, 17th-century music is followed by jazz, and a theatre monologue precedes the choir. It is an evening of bravura performances.
