The Coe College Music Department will present the third annual Keyboard Festival featuring keyboard students and faculty over two evenings. The concerts will be held on Friday, Jan. 19 and Saturday, Jan. 20 at 7:30 p.m. in Daehler-Kitchin Auditorium in Marquis Hall. Both events are free and open to the public.

This year's theme is "All in the Family," featuring keyboard ensemble music from musical families throughout history. The two concerts will consist of music for piano duet, two pianos, and two pianos-eight hands, by the Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Schumann families.

Friday's concert will feature performances by the Coe keyboard faculty, including Julia Titus, Marita Wolgast, Brett Wolgast and guest artist Diane Beach. At the Saturday evening concert, Coe College keyboard students will be featured, along with the faculty.

The Keyboard Festival is sponsored by Friends of Music at Coe (FOMAC). For more information, call 319-399-8521.
