Upcoming Performances

Unless otherwise noted, all performances are at the Reynolds Recital Hall  and are open to the public without charge.  Events are generally rescheduled when the university is closed because of inclement weather, and this schedule is updated throughout the semester.  Please contact the department (906) 227-2563 for the latest information.  More detailed information about individual performances can often be found on the NMU Master Calendar.

*Indicates admission charge.

MUSIC EDUCATION SEMINARS: Normally three music education seminars are held each semester. They include presentations by visiting teachers, explorations of music pedagogy, or exposure to new technology. Music education majors should plan to attend all these seminars to develop a consciousness of the profession and prepare for an effective career. Attendance at a certain number is required; in the graduating music education portfolio review, students must certify required attendance and active participation.
