As Spring Break approaches, there are still a few events to catch before break and many events to look forward to.

The last week before Spring Break, there are two recitals to catch. The first is at 4 p.m. and is a student recital. Then later, Jennifer Pitt is giving her senior recital on Tuesday Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Both events are free and in the Chapel.

On March 12, there is a reception for the Enid Williams Art Exhibit in the Mason-Schaferstein Museum of art.  Williams is a modern artist who called her work on her website, “an inquiry into the physical and intellectual process of perception, especially the manner in which we read and understand pictorial space.” 

She also said on her website that her work is inspired by charts that test for colorblindness, and that she finds them ironic because they are beautiful and viewers are persuaded to look at them longer to read them, and that is what she wants her work to do.  The exhibit is at 5:00 p.m. at the Mason-Schaferstein Museum of Art and is free for the public.

Paul Ramirez is coming to Piedmont’s chapel on March 15. Ramirez is an internationally acclaimed organist who at age 27 was appointed to be the first Organist in-Residence at the Auditoria Nacional Musica in Madrid. He now tours internationally mainly in the U.S. and Russia, and gives an annual recital at the Basilica in Mataro, Spain that draws an audience of over a thousand. The show will start at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday March 15 in the Chapel.

On March 19, there is another senior recital. Elizabeth Parmer will be giving her senior recital at 7:30 p.m. in the chapel and admission is free for all. 

Shortly after returning from their tour, the Piedmont College Singers will be giving their spring concert on March 24. The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. in the Chapel, and is $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors or free for all Piedmont students and faculty. Tickets are available at the door.
