West Chester’s Wells School of Music today announced the lineup for their fall FREE faculty recitals. In all, ten faculty recitals are programmed from September 9 through November 4, 2019. For more information and a full schedule of arts events on West Chester’s campus, visit www.wcupa.edu/arts.
Chris Hanning, dean of the Wells School of music says, “Faculty performances are a valuable teaching and learning tool. Our students have the chance to see their instructors perform and can ask questions about their performance and preparation during their one-on-one lessons. This type of teacher and student interaction is one of the most important aspects of their study.”
He adds, “We invite the members of our community to also enjoy these faculty recitals. Many of our expert faculty perform nationally and internationally, and members of our community can see them for free, and in an up-close and personal setting.”
Concerts are held in one of three state-of-the-art intimate venues on West Chester’s campus. The Madeleine Wing Adler Theatre and the Ware Recital Hall are both in the Swope Music Building and Performing Arts Center, 817 S. High Street. The Philips Autograph Library is in the Philips Memorial Building, 800 S. High Street.
