Buy tickets now for the Hale Library Concert Series celebration of composer Hanley Jackson
Join the Friends of the K-State Libraries as the Hale Library Concert Series presents an 80th birthday anniversary celebration of former K-State composer-in-residence Hanley Jackson. A recital of his solo and chamber music will take place at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 12, in All Faiths Chapel.
Hanley was an award-winning composer who scored music for many films. The program features several returning K-State music faculty members, including Patricia Thompson, mezzo-soprano, who will perform "Letters to Santa," a whimsical and poignant composition based on texts by Manhattan children. Refreshments will be served afterward.
And don't forget, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, May 31, the Hale Library Concert Series presents an evening of jazz with the K-State Faculty Jazztet! We'll be staging a rollicking Jazz in (Almost) June. Refreshments will be served prior to the concert.
No hard copy tickets will be issued; your name will be held at the door. Individual concert tickets are $30, student individual concert tickets are $10, Jazz in June concert tickets are $35 and student individual Jazz in June concert tickets are $10.
The Hale Library Concert Series is a cultural outreach program presented by the Friends of the K-State Libraries. It features the talented faculty, staff and alumni from the School of the Music, Theatre, and Dance. All proceeds go to an endowment fund for the refurbishment and upkeep of the Mason and Hamlin Grand Piano — which survived the Hale Library fire unscathed — and to the Concert Series Fund.
The series would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. For a full list of sponsors and to learn more, visit the Hale Library Concert Series webpage.
