WASHINGTON (February 15, 2012) – The Howard University Department of Music is embarking on a three-year celebration and fund-raising campaign to commemorate its 100th anniversary. A Gala Music Faculty Concert will launch this celebration on Sunday, Feb. 26 in the Andrew Rankin Memorial Chapel at 3:00 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public. Due to restrictions in making professional recordings infants and children under the age of 5 will not be admitted.

The program will feature masterworks from the 19th Century by Mendelssohn, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Saint-Saëns, and the African-American composer Frederick Eliot Lewis. Performing artists will be Raymond Jackson, concert pianist; Kehembe V. Eichelberger, mezzo soprano; Fred Irby, III, trumpeter; and the St. Georges String Quartet.

Your generous contribution will support our campaign to increase student financial assistance and improve our facilities. Contributions are tax deductible and may be made by check or credit card.
