Hope College musicians will present the first concert in the 2013-14 “Brown Bag Concert Series” at the Holland Area Arts Council on Friday, Sept. 6, at noon.

The public is invited.  Admission is free.

The concert will feature faculty and students.  The faculty performers will be Adam Clark, pianist and assistant professor of music; Jung Woo Kim, baritone and assistant professor of music; Andrew Le, pianist and associate professor of music; and Jennifer Wolfe, pianist and assistant professor of music.  The student performers will be freshman Francis LaPorte of Holland, trumpet; and senior Larissa Fall of Grand Rapids, violin.

Founded and directed by Le, the concert series takes place on the first Friday of each month. Each hour-long program consists of a variety of musical offerings from Hope students and teachers.

“The Brown Bag Concerts are designed to provide a variety of music in a casual atmosphere with the performers, dressed in jeans, sharing a bit about each piece to provide background information to the audience,” said Le, who is head of keyboard studies at Hope. “Listeners are encouraged to bring their kids or their co-workers on the lunch hour, pack a brown bag lunch and enjoy some exceptional music.”

Upcoming concerts are scheduled for November 1, December 6, February 7, March 7 and April 4.

The Holland Area Arts Council is located west of Columbia Avenue at 150 E. Eighth St.
