Brown Bag Lunch Series
FIRST FRIDAYS of the month
Noon - 1PM
Founded in 2008 and directed by Hope College piano professor Dr. Andrew Le (Drew), Brown Bag has rapidly become one of the most popular and innovative music events in the Holland area. Built on the premise that classical music should be accessible by all, the series presents classical art music in a setting that is completely free of pretense: performers are required to wear jeans and talk to the audience about their selections, people of all ages are encouraged to come and go as they please, and everyone is encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch and make as much or as little noise as they wish. Light beverages are also served.
The free Brown Bag concerts happen on the first Friday of every month of the academic year at the beautiful Holland Area Arts Council from 12-1PM. Each hour-long program consists of a wide variety of musical offerings primarily from Hope students, faculty, and staff.
November 30, 10am to 2pm
