All university-sponsored, non-Athletics events and gatherings are suspended through April 30 due to COVID-19.
Employee Appreciation will host “A Night of Music: Moonrise and Aurora” on Thursday, March 12, at the Blair School of Music’s Ingram Hall. Vanderbilt University employees and their families are invited to attend a pre-concert reception at 7 p.m. followed by a performance at 8 p.m. by the Vanderbilt University Orchestra and the Vanderbilt University Singers, conducted by Robin Fountain, professor of conducting at the Blair School.
Fountain and visual artist José Francisco Salgado reprise a program they presented in Singapore last summer that spotlights Solaris, Borealis, Wondrous Light by John Estacio, with video projections by Salgado. The evening also will include a collaboration with the Vanderbilt University Singers for Ravel’s Daphnis Suite No. 1 and 2, directed by Tucker Biddlecombe, associate professor of choral studies.
The concert is free and open to the public. However, Vanderbilt employees must register online for tickets and to attend the Employee Appreciation pre-concert reception.

The concert is presented in conjunction with the departments of Communication of Science and Technology, Physics and Astronomy, and Cinema and Media Arts; the College of Arts and Science; and the Curb Center at Vanderbilt.
