Recital ParticipantsThe IUP Community Music School will present two end-of-year recitals during the April 27–28 weekend, featuring students who have been taking private lessons throughout the course of the year. 

The first recital is at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 27, and will be held in DiCicco Hall (Rm. 121) of Cogswell Hall. The second recital is in the same location but on Sunday, April 28, and at 3:00 p.m. Although primarily voice and piano students participate, a variety of instruments will be on the recitals.

“For many students, this is one of the few opportunities they have to perform as a soloist, and it’s great to see how well they do, and how proud they are of their work and the performance,” said IUPCMS director Jeff Wacker. “While we’ve been holding firm at one recital a year since we started them, we’re getting closer to having students who are able to perform twice a year, or once at the end of each semester.”

The IUP Community Music School is funded in part by the College of Fine Arts through the Department of Music and the Lively Arts at IUP; the Pennsylvania Rural Arts Alliance, a program in partnership with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and funded by an annual appropriation from the state legislature; by generous gifts from multiple community members; and by corporate donors S&T Bank and IUP Dining.

Both recitals are free and open to the public. For more information, call the Lively Arts at 724-357-2787 (ARTS), or email community-music@iup.edu.
