Non-majors should take part

Nov. 12, 1998

The Kronos Quartet, a popular chamber group, will take the stage at 8 tonight in Jones Concert Hall inside the Glennis McCrary Music Building. The performance is part of the School of Music's Distinguished Artist Series. And while a small crowd may gather in the auditorium, chances are very few non-music majors will be in attendance.

Although students are required to take fine arts classes, many fail to fully appreciate the value of the arts and the talents of others.

Baylor, as with any institute of higher learning, is a place where students should come not just to obtain a degree, but to expand their realm of knowledge.

It is important for students to make time in their schedules to enrich their lives with quality entertainment at a fraction of the cost of a night out on the town.

Students need to take advantage of the wonderful art and music programs Baylor has to offer.

There are many performances offered through the School of Music and the theatre department, and student attendance at all performances should be high.
