Whether you’re interested in guitar concerts, choral music, comedies, musicals, dance, or jazz, look no further than Santa Clara University. Spring at SCU is teeming with quality productions.

The final recital of the series “God’s Grandeur” by noted art song interpreter Nancy Wait-Kromm, associate professor of music and chair of the music department, will grace the stage of the Music Recital Hall, Friday, April 30. This recital reflects the Ignatian spirit of finding God in all things, with timeless songs and poetry that reflect eternal beauty of the earth, its people, and its sacred beliefs.

Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple” gets a twist May 7-15 in the Fess Parker Studio when Florence Unger and Olive Madison clash in this female version of the comedy.

The “Passion, Grace and Fire” guitar concert at the Music Recital Hall on Friday, May 28 will highlight the ubiquitous influence that guitar has had on the modern musical experience.

As always, everyone is welcome on Wednesdays in the Concert Hall for the free Music at Noon series, which promotes artistic pluralism, cultural diversity, and global understanding through music.
