Public invited to music and dance performances at Widener

Widener University students will put on four music and dance performances for the public in December.

Chester, Pa. - Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season this December by attending music and dance performances by Widener University students. Four free performances will take place in the beginning of December on Widener's Main Campus and at a church in Chester.

'The performances are the culmination of a semester of hard work for our students. They have selected and practiced pieces that they enjoy and want to share,' said Dr. Mara Parker, professor of musicology and string performances and chair of the Fine Arts Department. 'They are eager to share their passion for music and dance with friends, family and the community.'

Performances are scheduled for the following dates:

  • A dual concert performed by students of Widener's Chamber Music and Dance programs will take place on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. in Widener's Kapelski Recital Hall (LC1). The building is located on E. 14th and Walnut streets. During the intermission, there will be a special exhibit featuring artwork from Widener University students in studio art classes.
  • Students of the vocal program will present their annual fall solo recital on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. in Lathem Hall located on E. 13th and Potter streets.
  • The Widener Chorale will present its annual fall concert on Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in Lathem Hall.
  • The Widener Chorale will again perform on Dec. 10 at 4 p.m. at the St. Paul's Episcopal Church at 301 E. 9th Street, Chester, Pennsylvania.
