Dr. William Bausano is conductor of Miami University Chamber Singers. AfriClassical asked him for information on a concert scheduled for Friday, Feb. 19, 2010: “A Hailstork Celebration, An evening of Adolphus Hailstork compositions featuring Miami ensembles.” Here is his reply:

“Dear Mr. Zick,
The program information is below. We will also perform 'Ye Shall Have a Song,' and encore that will not be in the printed program. Please be sure to list the correct name of the university as Miami University. The words 'of Ohio' are not a part of the name. Thank you for contacting me and for including this information on your web site. Bill Bausano”
