While Homecoming and Family Weekend are looming on the horizon, there are also other events happening soon on campus that are worth your students’ time. Here’s a quick shoutout to some of our artistic doings.
The play Our Town by Thornton Wilder is a classic, and it is finishing its run this weekend. This is your Deacs chance to see not only a great play, but the talents of their classmates and professors who work with the theatre.
The department of Music faculty is doing a faculty recital of Mozart on Tuesday, September 29th at 7:30 in Brendle Recital Hall. It’s free, and it should be amazing. Dr. Peter Kairoff will be playing a solo on the fortepiano, a reproduction of the type of piano that Mozart would have played in the 1780’s. How many other times will your students have a chance to hear that?
You can take advantage of many different artistic options during Family Weekend. I’ve searched our Events Calendar for next week and filtered just on arts activities. Visit the galleries, do as much as you can. It will be well worth it.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
