The Brown Bag Concert Series is held at the first Friday of each month. Concerts include performances by either Eastern faculty or students. David Belles, associate professor of performing arts, created the series to allow students studying applied music to perform in a relaxed environment while showcasing their musical talents.
"This opportunity is outside the normal purview of large ensemble and chamber concerts that occur regularly on campus," says Jeffrey Calissa, assistant professor of performing arts and faculty coordinator of the series. "It serves as a way for individuals to perform solo material."
The concert on Oct. 2 will be performed by Eastern faculty as a kick-off to the series and to demonstrate their musical abilities. The audience, which is encouraged to bring lunch, will sit onstage in 40 seats set up in two rows to contribute to a salon-type setting rather than a large auditorium.
