Several members of the music faculty of Hope College will perform in a recital on Sunday, Sept. 23, at 4 p.m. in Wichers Auditorium of Nykerk Hall of Music.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

The performance is the first in a series of faculty recitals that will be given throughout the school year. The series features vocal and instrumental pieces, soloists and ensembles.

The recital on Sept. 23 will cover a variety of composers, including Strauss, Ingolf Dahl, and Heitor Villa Lobos. Voice professor Elizabeth LaGrande will sing series of old English songs arranged by Rebecca Clarke.
