Tabor College’s Music Department will feature a faculty piano recital at 7 p.m., Feb. 6 in the Richert Auditorium of the Shari Flaming Center for the Arts.

The recital of Chopin’s nocturnes will showcase the talents of Sheila Litke, professor of music and director of keyboard studies at Tabor. The nocturnes are romantic character pieces for piano that have a relaxed or melancholy sound.

“Many people enjoy listening to Chopin, but the nocturnes are especially beautiful,” said Litke. “There may be some that are very familiar as well as some that might be new.”

Litke also plans to present a lecture of Chopin’s expressive markings and demonstrate musical examples at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, in the Vogel Choral Room in arts center.

Admission to both events is free of charge. For more information go to
