The Hope College Brown Bag Concert Series will present its final event of the fall semester on Friday, Dec. 2, at noon in the lobby of the Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts.
The public is invited. Admission is free.
Founded in 2008 and directed by Andrew (Drew) Le, associate professor of music, Brown Bag has rapidly become one of the most popular and innovative music events in the Holland area. This Brown Bag Concert will exclusively feature the piano studio of Le. Hope College piano students performing in this concert will include Abby Brummel, Mark Cunningham, Fiona Donley, Camille Fogg, Alissa Frazee, Kennadi Hawes, Ellen Messner, Carrie Mullen and Jolie Smith. The music selections to be presented will include works by Claude Debussy, Frederic Chopin, Maurice Ravel, Edward McDowell, Domenico Scarlatti, Sergei Prokofiev, Melody Bober and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.
Built on the premise that classical music should be accessible by all, the Brown Bag series presents classical art music in a setting that is completely free of pretense: performers are required to wear jeans and talk to the audience about their selections, people of all ages are encouraged to come and go as they please, and everyone is encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch and make as much or as little noise as they wish.
The Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts is located at 221 Columbia Ave., between Ninth and 10th streets.
