With the completion of the Gallagher Student Center, the Universitys long-running music series is returning to campus this fall. We left campus because they were tearing down the University Center, says Jack Heim, S.J., director of the music series. Now that the new theater is ready for us, were ready to move back in.
The 2002-2003 season offers up several classical pianists and guitarists, such as Jean-Philippe Collard, Janina Fialkowska and Antigoni Goni. The series also offers a change in the jazz music format. Instead of having just jazz piano or guitar soloists perform the program, the musicians are now performing in a group featuring instruments like swing sax, clarinet and trumpet.
This should make it more interesting for people, says Heim. Im excited about being back on campus. I think our audience will love the new theater.
The season runs from September through April. Scheduled are nine classical pianists, four classical guitarists and five jazz events. Season subscriptions range from $120 to $36. Prices of individual tickets vary. There is a $3 senior citizen discount. Grade school students through undergraduate college students are free with identification.
