Stritch’s Music Department will host events on
campus Nov. 17 -18.
On Nov. 17, high school students will participate in
the University’s Annual Piano Festival and Scholarship Audition from 9 a.m. -12:30
p.m. in the Nancy Kendall Theater.
The festival offers aspiring pianists the
opportunity to audition for scholarships to attend Stritch as music majors.
There are many events within the festival, including
competition, scholarship auditions, a workshop and master class, an awards
ceremony, and a winners’ recital.
All events are open to the public. For additional information, please contact the
festival’s director, Dr. Eun-Joo Kwak, at (414) 410-4662 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The musical weekend will continue on Nov. 18 with
“Three Mezzos,” a voice faculty recital presented by Kay Belich, Christine O’Meally,
and Amelia Spierer, accompanied by Dr. James Norden on piano. The recital will
take place at 2 p.m. in the Nancy Kendall Theater.
The three voice faculty members have never performed
together as a trio and are excited for the opportunity to collaborate.
“We thought it would be a good chance for the three
of us to put together some material that we might not have had the chance to do
by ourselves,” said Spierer.
Belich, O’Meally, and Spierer will perform an
engaging and entertaining program featuring the songs of Mendelssohn, Debussy,
Bizet, Purcell, and more.
Admission to the recital is free, and all are
welcome to attend.
