Put some music in your lunch hour

Conservatory student and bassoonist Jordan Wier performs during the Conservatory Concert Hour on September 23, 2022.

Everybody recognizes the iconic Faye Spanos Concert Hall on the southeast corner of the Stockton Campus. Many of you might also know it as a location of some scenes from the blockbuster movie “Indiana Jones, Raiders of the Lost Ark.” But what else is happening inside Pacific’s Conservatory of Music

Conservatory students invite you to come and find out for yourself. On several Friday afternoons during the academic year, they host the free Conservatory Concert Hour. These are professionally executed performances with repertoire ranging from well-known classical compositions to modern or original tunes composed by the students themselves. Drop in on your lunch hour to check out what your friends are up to. The next concert is on Friday, October 21 at 12:30 p.m.

Professor of bassoon Nicolasa Kuster is the faculty lead for these events. She believes that a concert is a “two-way street.” Both the performer and the audience benefit from the experience.

“To learn how to perform, musicians have to play for people,” said Kuster. “It’s a shared experience. Audience members give students a gift when they take the time to sit and listen. In this fast-paced life, learning to listen is of great value.” 

Any Pacific Tiger, no matter their field of study, as well as members of the larger community are welcome to come to the Conservatory Concert Hour events. All concerts start at 12:30 p.m. and feature musicians playing solo or in ensembles.
