On Tuesday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m., USA faculty pianist Scott Schwab will play a solo piano recital of varied repertoire that plays on the traditional wedding adage -- “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.” The program will consist of traditional repertoire (something old), music by a living composer (something new), transcriptions of songs (something borrowed), and music influenced by early Jazz (something blue). The concert will be in the Recital Hall of the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center.

Tickets for this Department of Music event will be sold at the door only. Admission is $8 general and $5 for USA faculty & staff, USA students, youths under 18 and all senior citizens (cash or check only). Musical Arts Series season passes will of course be honored for admission to this event. Persons needing more information about this event or in need of special accommodation may call 251-460-7116 or 251-460-6136.
