Thursday Scholarship Series: Wind Chamber Music Showcase

Wind chamber music, performed by faculty and students together, will be featured in this Thursday Scholarship Series concert. Part of the Spotlight on the Arts festival.

The Thursday Scholarship Series began in 1980 and, as the flagship concert series at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, continues the tradition of “Music Appreciation Programs” started by Hugh Hodgson himself in the 1930s. Proceeds from contributions and ticket sales to these concerts are among the primary means through which School of Music scholarship funds are raised each year.
