The Performing Arts Department at Eastern Connecticut State University will hold a faculty recital with music faculty members Emily Riggs and David Ballena on March 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Instructional Center Concert Hall.

Admission is free but donations will be gratefully accepted at the door. All proceeds from the recital will fund the Music Program’s Freshman Merit Scholarships.

The repertoire for the recital will showcase the relationship between folk song and art song and will include Manuel de Falla’s “Siete Canciones Poulres Españolas,” Xavier Montsalvatge’s “Cinco Canciones Negras,” Johannes Brahms’ “Zigeunerlieder op. 103” and selections from Aaron Copland’s “Old American Songs.”
