“Westmont is blessed to have incredibly talented music faculty and it’s exciting to see them perform in concert,” says Shasberger, Adams professor of music and worship. “Many of our student musicians have only seen the faculty in their teaching roles, so it’s a real pleasure for them to watch their teachers perform for the community.”

The faculty will perform pieces composed by Henry Purcell, George Enesco, Jacopo Peri, C. W. Von Gluck, Adam Guettel, Francine Tremblot de la Croix, Carl Reinecke, Dmitri Shostakovich, Philippe Gaubert and Dudley Buck.
