Evangel University faculty members to perform joint piano recital

Published on Oct 28, 2015 by Michaela Smith

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Dr. Linda Ligate, professor of music, and Jane Harris, associate professor of music, will perform a piano recital together on Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the Barnett Recital Hall.

There is no cost for admission, and the public is invited to attend.

Ligate said that she and Harris will perform the recital to explore a new musical repertoire and because she enjoys collaborating with colleagues.

“We hope that the audience enjoys the musical diversity of the repertoire and the opportunity to hear two piano literature,” Ligate said.
