WACO, Texas (Sept. 18, 2014) – The Baylor School of Music will host the 38th annual Lyceum Series this fall, which offers the Baylor community an opportunity to participate in a program of mini-residencies by some of the nation’s leading musical authorities.

Dick Veit, concert and promotion manager for the Baylor School of Music, said the purpose of the series is to educate students.

“These are great opportunities for Baylor students to see and hear world-class musicians at no charge, rather than traveling all the way to Dallas or Austin and buying a $40 ticket,” he said.

Tom Beghin, early keyboard artist, will lecture at 4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 22, in Meadows Recital Hall

Alice-Ann Darrow, music therapist, will lecture at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 6, in Meadows Recital Hall

The Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet, chamber group, will give a master class on Saturday, Oct. 11. (Location and time to be announced.)

Frank Ticheli, composer, will be on campus for a mini-residency from Oct. 20-23

Noa Kageyama, performance psychologist, will be on campus for workshops Oct. 24-26
