Guests from the Chapman community joined together Friday afternoon for a relaxing lunchtime concert in the Malloy Performance Portico of the Leatherby Libraries. The concert featured performances by eight talented guitar students of Professor Jeff Cogan, Director of Guitar Studies and Music Technology at the Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music. The student-organized concert starred classical guitar performances in small groups and solos where they dazzled their skills, practicing for their upcoming concert.
Not their first time playing in the portico, Performing Arts Librarian, Taylor Greene has done an excellent job bridging the musical and performing arts program with the library curriculum.
“Music at the Malloy concerts give library patrons and the public a chance to enjoy chamber music performed by students and faculty from the Chapman University Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music. The Malloy Portico, located just outside of the M. Douglas Music Library on the third floor of the Leatherby Libraries, provides a great location for watching the musicians perform.”
Afterwards, patrons were able to speak with the musicians and browse a sampling of books, music sheets and CDs exhibited from the collection of the M. Douglas Music Library.
