Music Department to Conduct Annual Piano Sale
During the past academic year, the Department of Music has had access to first-class standard and digital pianos through an association with the Rockley Family Foundation.
To perpetuate this program, these instruments, along with those provided other institutions, will be sold Friday through Sunday, Aug. 7 - 9, at the Robinson Hall for the Performing Arts. Individuals can schedule appointments to attend a "pre-sale" on Friday and Saturday by calling 704-687-1999; a final day sale will be from 12:00 - 5:00 PM, Sunday.
A large selection of grand, baby grand, digital player grand and digital pianos will be available from a number of manufacturers, including Steinway and Sons, Yamaha, Kawai, Cable Nelson, Story and Clark, Pearl River, Disklavier and Clavinova. Most instruments are less than a year old and are tuned and ready to go and include a full factory warranty. Click here for additional information about the sale.
'Fabled' on Display in Student Union Gallery
Art professors Heather Freeman and Jeff Murphy created the works in the exhibit “Fabled: Flederhund and Other Stories” on display in the Student Union Art Gallery through Friday, Aug. 7.
Some of the images were for their book “Flederhund.” Written for children, “Flederhund” centers on a young boy's encounters with both imaginary creatures and real places as he searches for his missing dog in Central Europe.
Freeman, an associate professor of digital media, teaches digital print, animation, video, installation and drawing. She holds a bachelor’s degree in fine art and German studies from Oberlin College and an M.F.A. in Studio Art from Rutgers University. Murphy, who received a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Ohio University and an M.F.A. from the University of Florida, is an associate professor of art. His classes include digital imaging, interactive design, photography, video and animation.
