Arts grant will bring musicians to DeKalb
For the second consecutive year, the Northern Illinois University Community School of the Arts has been awarded a $10,000 grant by the National Endowment for the Arts. The money will bring guest artists to DeKalb during the school year to perform for the public and to provide instruction and enrichment to students in the community school. Concerts and workshops are free and open to the public.
On Nov. 2, classical violinist, folk musician, singer and storyteller Susan Reed will perform a family concert in the Music Building. The next day, Reed will join Laura Knight, Oscar Soler and Scott Conklin as a clinician at the Suzuki Workshop. They will teach group classes, master classes and enrichment sessions to area Suzuki violin, guitar and cello students. The clinicians perform at 1 p.m. in the Concert Hall.
On March 9, William Hudgins, principal clarinetist with the Boston Symphony, and his wife, clarinetist Catherine Hudgins, will perform and conduct a master class at the NIU Clarinet Cornucopia.
