What does the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center mean to you?

The Clarice Smith Center was a major change to the cultural life of the University of Maryland. I think it’s the best venue I’ve been to since I had an affiliation with the university.

From France to India and Japan to Spain, the audience was musically transported around the globe in Exotic Voices, the latest installment of the “Music in Mind” series held in Gildenhorn Recital Hall on October 20. Featuring faculty artists and School of Music (SOM) alumni, the concert highlighted rare works for voice and chamber ensembles from around the world.

Influenced by the sounds of other lands and by their own musical nationalism, many of the prolific composers featured in the concert were able to create a unique taste of the exotic through their lesser-known chamber music.
