Perhaps contrary to popular belief, the Jordan College of the Arts’ main musical output is not sweeping symphonies, rousing overtures for winds or even faculty recitals.
Student recitals make up the largest percentage of the musical performances offered on campus.
Upwards of 50 are scheduled for this semester alone.
These performances, interestingly, are often overlooked by faculty, staff and even students inside JCA and across the university as a whole.
The recitals represent countless hours of work by students ranging from freshmen to graduate students. These students major in such areas as music education and music performance, and some are student composers.
Music ranging from centuries-old masterworks to pieces created earlier this month will be presented free of charge on campus.
A sampling of upcoming recitals is featured below.
The full schedule can be found at https://events.butler.edu/MasterCalendar by checking “The Arts” and then selecting “View.”
Most of the events take place in Eidson-Duckwall Recital Hall, located in Robertson Hall, though some take place in Lilly Hall.
