Arts Festival celebrates student work

Finger Lakes Community College students will display their talents in music, theater and art at the annual Spring Arts Festival Friday, May 6. 
The event, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. in room B355 on the third floor of the FLCC main campus, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive, and then move to the Williams-Insalaco Gallery 34 on the first floor.
Limited parking will be available in the main lot in front of the building. Parking is also available behind the building and in the Constellation Brands Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center lot.
The guitar ensemble will start the evening with selections that include “Pacific Highway.” The percussion ensemble’s repertoire will be a classic with a new twist, “William Tell’s Canned Overture.” The jazz ensemble will sing a number of bebop tunes, including a medley of 1940s songs and the theme from “The Pink Panther.”
The College Singers will perform Hungarian folk songs, the Irish air “Danny Boy” and other selections. 
Following the musical performances, the visual and performing arts student honors awards will be presented in the Williams-Insalaco Gallery 34, where student work will be on exhibit.
A recording of the Spring Mainstage Theatre production, “The Misanthrope,” will be shown continuously on a TV monitor outside the art gallery.
The Spring Arts Festival is presented by the FLCC Visual and Performing Arts Department, which offers degrees in communication, new media, fine arts, graphic design, music, music recording technology and a theater arts concentration. 
The student art exhibit is free and will run through May 21. Hours are Monday to Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, contact the gallery director, Barron Naegel, at (585) 785-1369 or
