letter to students interested in performance

To:  Prospective music students at BC

Re:  Performance opportunities at BC


First, let me add my voice to the chorus you've heard many times, " Welcome to BC!" 

This letter is to let you know about some of the performance opportunities we offer at BC, and more importantly, how to find out more about them.


The Music Department will be holding an important informational meeting on Sunday, August 28 at 2:00 pm in Lyons Hall 423 during which you will be able to learn about the many performance opportunities offered in the Music Department.  In addition, you will also have a chance to meet other music faculty members and current music students who will be available to talk with you and answer your questions, and there will be fabulous homemade cookies!  I encourage anyone who is or might be interested in any of the Music Department offerings to attend.


The BC Arts Council will host a welcome reception in the Bonn Studio at Robsham Theatre Thursday, August 25 from 1:00 - 3:00.  Faculty and students from all arts disciplines at BC will be available to meet you and answer questions.
