The evening will open with a performance by the 25-member Seton Hill University Griffin Band conducted by Theodore DiSanti, associate professor of music. The second part of the program will feature the Seton Hill University Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Kevin McManus, adjunct instructor of music.
At the intermission, the Seton Hill University Griffin Band will perform the new Griffin Fight Song for the first time. A contest was held for University students to write lyrics for the Griffin Fight Song. The top three songs were selected, performed by the Seton Hill University Band and posted to Seton Hill’s YouTube channel, and also made available for viewing around campus. The Seton Hill community then voted on the lyrics for the new Griffin Fight Song. The winner will be announced at the conclusion of the Griffin Band Concert. The student who wrote the winning lyrics will be presented a check for $500 by the Seton Hill Griffin.
