Concordia University, Nebraska’s Chamber Recital is scheduled for Nov. 15, 2016, at 7 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Music Center on campus featuring vocal duets, piano, cello and trumpet performances, as well as a brass ensemble performance.

“It is important for our music students to have opportunities to perform in large groups, small groups and as soloists,” said Dr. Elizabeth Grimpo, associate professor of music. “Performing in small groups, without a conductor, allows students to work together, using their musical skills and knowledge to make musical and artistic decisions. There is a lot of variety in this year’s recital so it should be very enjoyable.”
