A Look at WCU’s Historic Music Program
Tuesday, November 30 | 8:00PM | REGISTER
Since our founding, music has played an integral part in academics and student life. This year, the Wells School of Music will be celebrating its 100th Holiday concert! Join Museum Director Michael Di Giovine for an examination of some of the rich artifacts from our musical history, before moving to Asplundh Hall, where Dean Christopher Hanning and Holiday Program Director Dr. Ryan Kelly will provide an engaging look back at a century of holiday music. Enjoy stories from alumni and examine our famed 1926 Skinner Organ. Did you know that one of the first people to play the Skinner Organ in Asplundh Hall was famed composer and West Chester resident Samuel Barber? We’ll close with an exclusive, up-close look at the Skinner organ as we take a trip down memory lane. This not-to-be-missed event is a perfect way to welcome in the holiday season!

A Conversation with Terry Beattie

Dating back to 1899 when baseball was introduced as the first known sport at West Chester, the athletics department has a long and storied history at our beloved institution. Since 1899, West Chester has captured 18 team National Championships, and 159 PSAC Championships. But wins and losses is not the only way WCU athletics measures success. Join Director of Athletics, Terry Beattie, for an exclusive tour and conversation with anthropologist and Museum Director Michael Di Giovine to learn more about the past, present, and future of WCU Athletics and how success in the classroom and in the community fuels success in competition.
