Music Ensembles Perform at Spring Forum

The Southern Virginia University music ensembles performed for the last forum of the 2018-19 academic year on April 19.

“This musical forum is my personal-favorite forum of the year,” said Music Department Chair Eric Hanson. “It represents the end of a school year full of hard work and excellence in the performing arts and we’re always excited to share it with you.
