The student-centered concert features performances from:
- Asriel Davis, a graduate student majoring in organ performance in the Setnor School, and Anne Laver, University organist and assistant professor of applied music and performance in the Setnor School, on the Hendricks Chapel organ;
- Syracuse University Symphony Orchestra directed by James Tapia, associate professor of applied music and performance in the Setnor School;
- The international award-winning Syracuse University Singers under the direction of John Warren, professor of applied music and performance and director of choral activities in the Setnor School;
- Crouse Chorale and Setnor Sonority directed by Wendy Moy, assistant professor of music education in the Setnor School and the School of Education, and Peppie Calvar, respectively; and

“Our emergence from the COVID-19 pandemic is slow, but steady and safe. Our ensembles continue to make music together in person using masks and other protective measures. We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to come together to make music in a time when so many musicians have been unable to do so,” says Calvar. “We’re also grateful to Brian Konkol, dean of Hendricks Chapel, for his leadership in continuing to provide support for you to enjoy our students’ work in Hendricks Chapel or wherever you may be.”
