Faculty Artist Series Harmonizes at Herberger College


August 07, 2006

TEMPE, Ariz. – World-renown faculty musicians at the ASU Herberger College of Fine Arts School of Music step out of their classrooms, gather their instruments, and take the stage for fall performances that appeal to patrons of all musical tastes.  Fourteen solo and ensemble performances, ranging from chamber music to jazz piano, comprise the fall 2006 Faculty Artist Series. 

Faculty Artist Series enables the community to hear and experience musicians who are so devoted to their art that they choose to share it – by teaching and performing.

“The musicians who perform in the Faculty Artist Series concerts present an array of musical works,” says Kimberly Marshall, Goldman Professor of Organ and School of Music interim director.  “Community members will be thrilled by what these amazing musicians have to offer.”

Patrons can enjoy these concerts at affordable prices on a regular basis. Faculty Artist Series concerts are Sept. 1 through Nov. 19 in Katzin Concert Hall and Organ Hall, in the Music Building on the ASU Tempe campus.  General admission tickets are $8. Faculty Artist Recital Series patrons are encouraged to purchase single tickets in advance. Tickets are available at the door on a space-available basis. 

Pending availability, ASU students may pick up FREE recital tickets during the week they occur at the Herberger College Box Office, located in the Nelson Fine Arts Center. Current ASU student ID is required at pick-up.
