Dr. Laura Moore will perform the third of four Piano Camp Faculty Recitals on Wednesday, June 15 at 3:00 p.m. in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall. The emphasis of this year's piano camp is American Music, hence all of the faculty will be concentrating their performance efforts in this area. Dr. Moore will perform solo piano works by MacDowell, Griffes and Beach in the first portion of the concert. After the intermission, she will be joined by fellow USA faculty and tenor Dr. Thomas Rowell for piano and vocal works by Ives, Copland, Barber, Bernstein and more.

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