Shhh Free Sunday

Passport – Student Recital

The Williams College Department of Music presents the first of a new series titled Shhh Free Sundays on Sunday, Nov. 22, at 1 p.m. in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall on the Williams College campus. This free event is open to the public and does not require tickets or standard adult concert etiquette.

We are very excited to introduce Shhh Free Sundays, a new recital/outreach series aimed at the younger audience to introduce them to various kinds of music played by young adults (aka Williams College students). Before performing, the musicians will introduce themselves and their piece. They will say a little something about the composer.

We have ten students performing. Patrick Lin ’13, songwriter; Noah Field ’11, viola; Katie Griffith ’13, flute; Matthew Crimp ’12, violin; and a wind quintet comprised of Akemi Ueda ’11, clarinet; Zina Ward ’12, oboe; Meghan Landers ’13 and Gordon Bauer ’13, bassoon; and Elizabeth Irwin ’10, French horn.

After students have all performed, they will return to the stage to talk to the younger set about why they chose their discipline, how old they were, how often they practice, and what music means to each of them. Questions will then be invited.

During the recital, there is no shhh’ing allowed. Children of every age are welcome to follow where the inspiration takes them.  Though shushing is banned, singing along and dancing  in the aisle are welcome!
