Notre Dame College Spring Concert to Celebrate Retiring President

Notre Dame College and its performing arts programs will present the 2014 annual Spring Concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, in the Regina Auditorium.

The show is free and open to the public.

The night of music featuring the College Concert Band and the College Choir, in addition to smaller instrumental and vocal ensembles, will honor Andrew P Roth, Ph.D., and his achievements during his time as president of Notre Dame College.

The program, titled “A Voyage of Discovery,” aims to honor the legacy of Roth through several unique musical selections that pay homage to the College's past, present and future under his leadership. The musical repertoire highlights selections ranging from Irving Berlin to Elton John to a piece arranged specifically for the voyage embarked upon by Roth.

The concert is a culmination of an entire semester of work for over 100 students.

The show also serves as a farewell to Karita Ivancic, S.N.D., D. Min., the College's director of choral music, who has taught at Notre Dame for 12 years.  Ivancic ’71, is moving into a different set of roles within the College’s theology department beginning in fall 2014.

“The Performing Arts Department is excited to be involved in this monumental night for the College,” said William Neater, director of performing arts programs. “Both Dr. Roth and Sr. Karita have come to embody the real potential of the College and its students. This night of honor is a small piece of our gratitude towards them.”
