Mary Neil, professor of piano and musicianship, will perform her final recital as a faculty member April 10. She plans to retire in May after a 32-year career with the college.
She said recently she's most excited to perform the Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904) Piano Quintet in A major with a string quartet of Augustana alumni she invited to be on the program.
"I have always enjoyed playing with students throughout my 32-year career at Augustana, so it’s fitting to feature some of them on the recital," Dr. Neil said. The Augie alumni who formed a quartet are Elizabeth Lundine (violin), Madeline Ruzek (violin), Adam Bengfort (viola) and Cole Guillien (cello).
