Faculty Artists & Friends Series a real treat

With concerts that range from a spellbinding performance of Russian post-Romantic music to an internationally renowned violist and contemporary chamber music performed by Montreal’s In Extensio, the Faculty Artists and Friends Series provides one of the most diverse music series in the city.

“We are featuring a nice mix of faculty performers and guest artists, including a number of exciting collaborations,” says Dr. Paul Sanden, organizing committee member. “For instance, long-time Lethbridge musician and faculty member, Dale Ketcheson, is presenting an evening of music featuring several of his musical friends and collaborators from the community on Oct. 19. On Dec. 6, music department Chair Dr. Deanna Oye performs with 2013 U of L honourary degree recipient and violist, Rivka Golani, in a special fundraising concert in support of student scholarships."

Taken as a whole, the Faculty Artists and Friends Series offers audiences an incredibly diverse range of musical experiences this year.

“One of the greatest strengths of this series is that it brings to Lethbridge a musical diversity hard to find elsewhere. While each concert is incredibly rewarding in and of itself, the entire series of five concerts offers listeners an even richer and deeper musical experience,” says Sanden.

Tickets for Faculty Artists and Friends Series concerts are available at the University Box Office.
