Warrensburg – Lifelong Learning at the University of Central Missouri presents Allison Robbins, an assistant professor of music, to start the seventh year of free programming.
Robbins will offer an explanatory prelude to the music performed in the Provost’s Faculty Showcase.
“In Robbins’ fast-paced, 45-minute preview, she will provide you with background information on the pieces that will be performed later that evening, including information about the composer and the context in which the piece was written,” UCM information states.

The introduction begins at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24, in UTT 100 at UCM.
The Provost’s Faculty Showcase follows at 7:30 p.m. at Hart Recital Hall.
