SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music Welcomes In-Person & Virtual Audiences for Upcoming Concerts & Recitals

Marie-Élaine Gagnon (cello) will be one of six Crane School of Music faculty members performing “A Soirée of Chamber Music by Franz Lachner and Lester Trimble,” on Tuesday, Sept. 28.

A full slate of live performances are planned this semester at SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music, all themed around “Peace and Love.” This year’s theme is a tribute to the life and legacy of the late Crane School of Music Dean Emeritus Dr. Lonel Woods, who passed away in May 2021.

Crane is thrilled to safely welcome back audiences for performances once again this year. Audience members will be required to wear face coverings, and seating will be socially distanced.

The events are a community benefit of being home to one of the premier schools of music in the nation—and thanks to livestreaming, anyone anywhere can watch and enjoy. To view upcoming performances, and find the livestream link, visit http://www.potsdam.edu/cranelive.
