The Wayne State College Department of Music hosted a WSC Department of Music Alumni Day on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014.

Alumni of any Wayne State College music ensemble participated for the opportunity to reminisce with music friends and faculty through the WSC Alumni Chorus and WSC Alumni Band. The event featured two former WSC ensemble conductors, Dr. Cornell Runestad and Dr. Gary Davis.

Runestad is the recipient of the Nebraska Choral Directors Association Lifetime Achievement Award, and Davis is a long-time director of the University of Nebraska-Kearney band and recipient of the NSBA Outstanding Bandmaster Award.

Socials and rehearsals were held throughout the day, and alumni worked with Dr. Elise Hepworth, director of concert choir, and Dr. David Bohnert, director of bands. A performance by the WSC Concert Choir and Wind Ensemble was held in Ramsey Theatre at 4 p.m., with performances by the WSC Alumni Band and Chorus at 4:30 p.m. The event concluded with a 5 p.m. reception in the Peterson Fine Arts Atrium.

Cost for participation in the event was $20, which covered the cost of music and snacks for the day.
