A Competitive Edge for a Creative Field

The Mary Pappert School of Music at Duquesne University has canceled all remaining in-person concerts, recitals, and events for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester.

A Little Friday Night Music

Because we have a strong belief that music has the power to unite, to heal, and to uplift, and as a way to contribute to the ongoing effort to combat the effects of the coronavirus, we created a brand-new virtual concert series called A Little Friday Night Music.

Each Friday at 7:30 p.m. (beginning this Friday, March 27 and for the remainder of the semester), we will premiere a video of past performances from our school to our YouTube channel. We hope you all will click over to these performances as they go live, creating a community of people who are all listening to the same music at the same time. To that end, we've set up a playlist that will grow with each video posted.

As details for each premiere become available, they will be listed in the calendar below. We sincerely hope you will take a moment each Friday night to tune in!
