After a difficult year for Corban’s performing arts departments, the University was thrilled to once again offer live, on-campus entertainment to the community. Beginning in the fall, Corban saw the return of live audiences as the Corban Theatre Department presented its production of Remember My Name. The story of a young Jewish girl’s survival in wartime France, this heartfelt drama both entertained and inspired.
“It was such an incredible blessing to be able to perform in front of a live audience again,” says Corban Theatre member, Amber Davis, who played the role of Marie-Thérèse Barbière. “It made the experience so much more meaningful and enjoyable.”
The same could be said for members of Corban’s band, choir, and orchestra as they took the stage for “Christmas at Corban,” delighting a packed Psalm Center with a repertoire of sacred music that highlighted the significance and sanctity of the season. “The community aspect of live music is vitally important, especially at Christmas,” says Associate Professor of Music and Music Program Director, Dr. Mark Stanek. “The Christmas message put to music is always impactful.”
