POTSDAM -- Students and faculty from Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam will travel to Long Island and the capitol region to present concerts and clinics from Feb. 27 to March 1.

The Crane Symphony Orchestra will travel to the Herricks Union Free School District and the Colonie Central School District, along with members of the school's faculty. They are set to present concerts, meet with students and work with educators, including Crane alumni.

"The students in the orchestra are excited about the opportunity to share their passion for music and performance with audiences in Long Island and Albany. I believe this tour will be an invaluable experience for our students, many of whom are future educators," Crane Director of Orchestras Ching-Chun Lai said.

The visiting faculty from SUNY Potsdam's Crane School of Music will include Anna Hendrickson, oboe; John Lindsey, violin; Carol Lowe, bassoon; Matt Wexler, cello; and the Potsdam Brass Quintet, featuring John Ellis and James Madeja on trumpet, Kelly Drifmeyer on horn, Mark Hartman on trombone and Charles Guy on tuba.
