What is music? Jessica Wise defines her passion

Feb 27, 2017 - Comments: 0

What is music? According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary “music is the science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationship to produce a composition having unity and continuity”.

This definition only addresses the science behind the music, and most of us don’t consider the science when we are walking to class listening to our IPod.  At Ohio Northern University we are among a select group of students who dedicate their time and studies to create those combination of sounds.

The Wind Orchestra’s Setting The Standard concert at ONU is a marvelous example of student involvement in the university. From the musicians, attendees and even the Freed Center staff, students worked every aspect of this production. Within the orchestra itself, students from all over the university, regardless of major are able to participate as a musician in the orchestra. It’s here in the orchestra that students whose paths may never cross otherwise, get to meet and create lasting relationships.
