World Renowned Herberger College School of Music Faculty to Appear in recitals on campus this Year


August 12, 2005

TEMPE, Ariz. - One of the most popular performance series in the Valley returns to Arizona State University this fall. The Faculty Artist Recital Series, presented by the Herberger College School of Music, will present 29 concerts by top faculty musicians playing a variety of instruments from electro-acoustical to tuba.

Music faculty, who appear as soloists or with prestigious ensembles all over the world, make ASU a centerpoint of their tour. Venues for the Faculty Artist Recital Series are the Katzin Concert Hall and Evelyn Smith Music Theatre, both located in the Music Building at 40 E. Gammage Parkway on ASU's main campus in Tempe.

Wayne Bailey, director of the School of Music, explains the rarity of this popular series, "The School of Music faculty are some of the highest quality performers in their specialty areas in the country. The School of Music is really the only place in the Phoenix area where you can hear professional level solo recitals and chamber music on a regular basis."

Three money-saving packages, together with low single ticket prices, make it easy for Valley music lovers to enjoy these professional performances. Single tickets to recitals are $8 each and various packages reduce prices even more. The "Pick Six" package is $36, which is a $12 savings. The "Top Ten" package is $60, an even bigger savings of $20. And the new "Take Twenty" package is $100, a huge $60 savings.
