Re: Performance opportunities at BC
First, let me add my voice to 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 several informational meetings during which you will be able to learn about the many performance opportunities offered in the Music department. A number of music faculty members and music students will attend and 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.
Dates, times and location of Music department meetings are as follows:
Sunday, August 31, 1:00 p.m., Lyons Hall 423
