To kick off a weekend to remember – September 24 through September 27 will have something for every musical taste.
If you like the Symphony –

The 22nd season of the Hill College Performing Arts Series begins with an encore performance by the Baylor Symphony under the direction of Stephen Heyde Sept. 24 in the Vara Martin Daniel Performing Arts Center, just behind the Texas Heritage Museum on the Hillsboro Campus at 7:30 pm.  No tickets are required and seating is first-come first-served basis.  A reception will follow, hosted by the Hillsboro Sesame Club.

Heyde, who is the Mary Franks Thompson Professor of Orchestral Activities and Conductor-in-Residence at Baylor University, is only the second conductor the group has had since its inception in 1944 under the baton of Daniel Sternberg, the Dean of the School of Music at that time.  Heyde took over in 1984 and since that time has led this outstanding ensemble to national notoriety, performing eight times at the Texas Music Educators Clinic/Convention as well as performances at the national conventions of the American String Teachers Association and the College Orchestra Directors Association.  The symphony has performed as part of the Hill College Performing Arts Series on three previous occasions.

This year’s program will include a special feature, the performance of Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G by Baylor School of Music Artist-in-Residence and Professor of Piano Krassimira Jordan.  Ms. Jordan taught piano previously at the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts, where she also studied after attending the Sofia Conservatory in Moscow.  Her performances in prestigious venues throughout the world and competitive successes are too numerous to mention.

But if you are looking for a FUN-PACKED evening to entertain children and the Young at Heart…The Carnival will be in Town to kick-off the Cotton Pickin’ Fair.

There is something for everyone the Weekend of September 24-27.

Let’s roll out the Hillsboro BUZZ
