The College of DuPage Music program will present free musical performances and discussions Fridays this fall virtually via the McAninch Arts Center website.

Music Fridays @ Noon is a series of one-hour programs featuring free performances and presentations by COD students, faculty, alumni and guests.

“Music Fridays @ Noon has offered relevant programming and concerts for our community and music students for more than seven years,” said COD Professor of Music Lee Kesselman. “We are grateful to our faculty, guest performers and music students who are committed to continuing these great programs. If you have never experienced a Music Friday event, here is your chance to join us from the convenience of your own computer. If you are a Music Friday fan, we can’t wait to have you back with us - online.”

The fall Friday programs begins Sept. 4 with COD faculty members Marie Bennett (flute), Katherine Hughes (violin) and Dorothy Deen (cello) performing pieces by Bach and Haydn, as well as Bizet’s Carmen Suite.

Future events include a panel discussion “So You Want to Be a Music Major” (Sept. 11); faculty members Andy Rozsa and Bill Buhr performing music by Bach, Brahms, Telemann, Bozza and Koetsier (Sept. 25); faculty members Tanya Carey and Cindy Trowbridge performing Beethoven’s “Op. 5” cello and piano sonatas; a student recital (Oct. 16); a performance by faculty member Matt Shevitz of songs by Blue Note Records’ recording artists (Oct. 30); faculty members Karol Sue Reddington and Marcia Lehe performing Manuel Infante’s “Danses Andalouses” for two pianos (Nov. 20); and Music program student recitals (Dec. 4 and 11).
