The Concert Hour Involving Music Teachers (C.H.I.M.E) at the Sheboygan Campus, Oct. 17, 2019 featured talented UW-Green Bay faculty from multiple campuses. See the full release, here.
Performances were by Assistant Prof. Luis Fernandez, Assistant Prof. Michael Rector, Associate Prof. Adam Gaines, Assistant Prof. Bill Salak and Sheboygan Campus Associate Lecturer Paul Sucherman. The concert is coordinated by Sheboygan Campus Associate Prof. Christy Talbott.
“This concert provides an opportunity for these educators to showcase their own musical talents to audiences who might never have seen them on this side of the baton,” Talbott says. “Each of these individuals has spent years training on a specific instrument, but it can be difficult to find the time to put together a program alone,” she said. “This concert allows them to share the spotlight with other talented teachers in the area. We especially encourage area high school and college students to come and hear these wonderful teachers and directors perform.”
