Dr. Elizabeth Grimpo, associate professor of music at Concordia, is one of five faculty sharing their talents at the Faculty Showcase Recital, schedule pending.

Music faculty members at Concordia will showcase vocal, instrumental and keyboard musical selections during a recital in the Music Center’s Recital Hall on campus. The date has been postponed and is yet to be determined.

“The music department presents a faculty recital every fall because while we are all teachers, we are still musicians who continue to study and learn new music, practice on a regular basis and perform,” said Dr. Elizabeth Grimpo, associate professor of music at Concordia. “It’s something we enjoy doing and that passion for music lasts a lifetime, which we want our students to see.”

The recital will feature a variety of classical repertoire performed by five faculty members including Talea Bloch, soprano, and Anne Gray, soprano, each doing a vocal performance, Grimpo on piano, Julia Marble on violin and Paul Soulek on organ.

The recital is free and open to the public. A brief reception with light refreshments will follow.
