Dr. Kevin Ayesh will perform the second of four Piano Camp Faculty Recitals on Tuesday, July 11 at 3:00 p.m. in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.

Tickets for this Department of Music event will be sold at the door only. General admission is $5 for all attendees other than Piano Camp participants.
