Oakton’s art and music students put talents on display Nov. 17

(Nov. 2, 2017) Experience the best of Oakton Community College’s art and music students at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 17, at the college’s Performing Arts Center lobby, 1600 E. Golf Road, Des Plaines. “The Art of Music/The Music of Art” is free and open to the public.

Hear performances and see original paintings, drawings, collages, photography and 3D art while mingling with the talented artists that created them. Gifted students from Oakton’s versatile music department will entertain with solos, duets and ensembles – from jazz to pop – on guitar, strings, piano and woodwinds.

“Collaboration is an important Oakton value,” says professor of music Glenna Sprague, coordinator of music. “The collaboration between the art and music departments to showcase the student works of art in our community while giving our students an informal environment to perform in is a good learning experience for Oakton's music students.”
