Typically occurring the first Sunday afternoon in December, Mosaic is an annual concert showcasing the School of Music's most outstanding soloists, small ensembles, and large ensembles. Using the special lighting effects of Eisenhower Auditorium, performances connect seamlessly from the stage and grand tier to the balcony; from the transparent walls of the auditorium to the audience seating area. With applause occurring only at the intermission and conclusion, Mosaic offers a fast-paced and varied concert experience, keeping the audience guessing as the performances change placement throughout the venue.
Mosaic is organized by the Ensemble Area of the School of Music, with generous assistance provided by the entire school faculty and the technical staff of Eisenhower Auditorium. Student soloists and small ensembles are auditioned in early October for the honor of appearing on this prestigious concert.
A part of the Center for the Performing Arts concert series, the Mosaic performance sells out each year, and early ticket purchase is recommended. A portion of all ticket proceeds benefit scholarship funds in the School of Music.
