Kaleidoscope just may be Fred Cohen's favorite concert of the year. Cohen, a music professor in the Columbus State University Schwob School of Music, said he enjoys sitting back and watching the students perform various types of music in ensemble groups and as soloists.
He expects Saturday's concert to be "as good as ever," he said. "They can just walk on the stage and go. These kids are used to it."
"This is the only fully Schwob event," Cohen said. "This is their (the students) thing. The faculty has just facilitated their event."
This is the sixth year for this type of concert, now called Kaleidoscope. Previously it had been called Prism.
About 250 students will participate; some will play in multiple times because they will do solo, duo and/or ensemble work.
The show lasts about 70 minutes and starts at 7:30 p.m. at RiverCenter's Bill Heard Theatre. Tickets cost $20. 706-649-7225.
