WCU 150th Exhibition Lecture and Tour
Since our founding, music has played an integral part in academics and student life. This year, the Wells School of Music will be celebrating its 100th Holiday concert! Join Museum Director Michael Di Giovine for an examination of some of the rich artifacts from our musical history, before moving to Asplundh Hall, where Dean Christopher Hanning and Holiday Program Director Dr. Ryan Kelly will provide an engaging look back at a century of holiday music. Enjoy stories from alumni and examine our famed 1926 Skinner Organ. Did you know that one of the first people to play the Skinner Organ in Asplundh Hall was famed composer and West Chester resident Samuel Barber? We’ll close with an exclusive, up-close look at the Skinner organ as we take a trip down memory lane. This not-to-be-missed event is a perfect way to welcome in the holiday season!
