William Peace University Announces 2014-2015
Manning Chamber Music Concert Season Schedule
Four-Year Baccalaureate Continues Partnership with
North Carolina Symphony in Eighth Annual Music Series
RALEIGH, N.C., August 25, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, is proud to announce the 2014-2015 Manning Chamber Music Concert Season schedule. The eighth annual series is in conjunction with the North Carolina Symphony, and will feature five shows throughout the academic year held on the William Peace University campus.
Performances will include Jazz musician Steve Elmer with Triangle residents and area musicians Robert Cohen and Don Gladstone, Monday, September 8, Broadway musicians Carolann Sanita and WPU Visiting Professor Lauren Kennedy on Monday, October 20, and members of the North Carolina Symphony on Monday, November 10, Monday, January 12, and Monday, April 6. All performances are made possible through a gift made by Alumna Sara Jo Allen Manning ’58 ’60 which established The Manning Chamber Music Series Fund.
All Manning Series Concerts are free and open to the public; however, registration is required for general admission reserved seating.
“We’re really excited for this year’s lineup,” said Julie Ricciardi, Vice President for Engagement at William Peace University. “Not only are we continuing our fantastic relationship with the North Carolina Symphony, but we’re adding some new pieces into the mix with one of our faculty members performing. It really is must-see entertainment.”
“We’re happy to provide our faculty, staff, students, and Alumni, along with the local community, a series of fun and exciting shows,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., President of William Peace University. “The Manning Series has become a tradition here and it’s something people really enjoy seeing.”
“I love that the University offers us an outlet from school with awesome shows during the week,” said Justin Cornett, William Peace University ’16. “We’re in the middle of downtown, but we don’t even have to leave campus to catch great events.”
