The Hope College Brown Bag Concert Series will present its final event of the spring semester on Friday, April 7, 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 feature student performers from different disciplines within Hope’s music program. Hope music students performing in the concert will include saxophonist Hilary Hunsberger; double bassists Areal Tolsma and Ethan Rader; and pianists Kennadi Hawes, Elizabeth Lindquist and Matt DeJongh.
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.
