In addition to the many performances at Temple, the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and other regional venues, several Boyer ensembles have performed to sold-out audiences at one of New York's most prestigious music venues -- Lincoln Center.

In March, the Temple University Concert Choir, under the direction of Paul Rardin, performed works by Brahms, Bates and Swingle in addition to Poulenc's Gloria with the Masterworks Festival Chorus, consisting of choirs from California, Colorado, and New York.

In April, the Temple University Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Luis Biava, performed for the third time in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, featuring the New York premiere of a major work commissioned by the Boyer College, Reflections on the Mississippi for orchestra and tuba by three-time Grammy Award winner, Michael Daugherty. Boyer faculty member and Principal Tuba with the Philadelphia Orchsetra, Carol Jantsch, was the soloist. Read a review.
