FRIDAY AT FOUR RECITAL SERIES

Free and Open to the Public

Whitman College Fridays at Four Recital Series presents Gary Hemenway, piano/voice, and Dave Glenn, trombone, performing original compositions. Both performers are on the Whitman faculty. The recital series allows faculty and students to perform and share their talents with the community. Each free performance last an hour and is a great way to end a work week and/or begin a weekend.

This restored 120-seat recital and lecture hall was named in honor of Ruth Baker Kimball '31, 
who served the college as a distinguished volunteer for many years.

Early attendees await the start of the recital in Kimball Theatre on the Whitman campus.

Kimball Theatre is located within the building known as Hunter Conservatory. It was designed by Portland architect Ellis F. Lawrence and is an example of Neo-Classical style and Georgian Revival as seen by the detailing in the wood pilasters and railings.


 Additionally, the atrium and recital hall are distinctive with leaded stained-glass skylights in both.



A rapt audience listens intently while a lone student looks on from the balcony.
