Music: ‘Wayne Will Explain’ recital April 28
Looking for a BORING recital? This is NOT one. Dr. Wayne Pope, Associate Professor of Voice, and Julie Pride, Theatre and Dance Pianist, present Wayne Will Explain, their annual themed recital on Sunday (April 28). Join them for an hour of laughter, conversation, truth and poignancy (and there’s fabulous music too) as they attempt to explain, why musicians do what they do.
“I knew I wanted to pursue music back in middle school,” Dr. Pope said, “but it’s different for everyone.”
“Like others in the arts, we do it because we can’t – not do it,” Pride said.
Wayne Will Explain begins at 3 p.m. April 28 at the Ivan Wilson Fine Arts Center Recital Hall at WKU. The event is free and open to the public.
Contact: Wayne Pope, (270) 745-5920.
