Many of the School’s stellar faculty perform regularly on the stages of the world’s leading concert halls. The Faculty Artist Series presents these exceptional musicians in solo and chamber programs that are free and open to the public.
Programs often highlight on a theme, focus on a specific time period, or illuminate a featured composer. Faculty artists often collaborate with distinguished guest performers and emerging artists from the School of Music.
