Up Close & Musical Series

Update: Thursday's WSU/WOW Master Class/Concert postponed until April. Friday show will still be held.  

Westfield on Weekends and the Westfield State University Music Department have announced that this Thursday’s Up Close and Musical events (a Master Class with renowned jazz drummer/percussionist Rudy Royston and his quintet scheduled for 3:45 pm and concert at 7:30 at the Dower Center for the Performing and Fine Arts) have postponed until April 19, due to the threat of inclement weather on February 23.

However, the series will continue as scheduled with the first “Beethoven to Broadway” evening of the season featuring students and faculty on Friday, February 24 at 7 pm at WOW’s Center for Creative Arts, 105 Elm Street.

Westfield on Weekend's Up Close and Musical program is a series of large and small recitals with students and faculty performers from Westfield State University. The music spans the ages from Beethoven to Broadway!

The series will continue on Friday, February 24 at 7 pm at WOW’s Creative Arts Center, 105 Elm Street with the “Beethoven to Broadway” evening, featuring students and faculty, during which a “Q and A” period after each performance allows audiences to learn about the musicians, their instruments, repertoire and process.

“On behalf of Westfield on Weekend's and our Up Close and Musical Program, I'd like to thank the community for joining us as we collaborate with the University and local venues to offer free, fantastic music to our city.” said Kathi Bradford, Director of the Creative Arts Center. "We look forward to the upcoming events as we start our third season."

“Up Close and Musical” is partially funded with a grant from the Westfield Cultural Council, a local program of the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

WOW’s Creative Arts Center is a program of Westfield on Weekends, a 501 (c)(3) volunteer non-profit which seeks to enhance community life through accessible and affordable programming that celebrates the diversity of life in Westfield.
