Recitals On Demand from NEIU

NEIU Recital Hall

NEIU Recital Hall

Hear concerts on-demand.

Nestled in a neighborhood bounded by Pulaski on the west, Kimball on the east, Devon on the north and Foster on the south, is Northeastern Illinois University.  NEIU is a commuter university; and the students reflect this ethnically diverse area.  Take a walk in the neighborhood and you’ll see devout Orthodox Jews on the way to Shabbat services, women in beautiful Indian dress, Pakistani cab drivers, and college students in jeans and T-shirts.  But perhaps you didn’t know that NEIU is a mecca for the arts.

The University has a first rate visual arts curriculum, with gallery shows by students and visiting artists throughout the year.  The music department is thriving: there are at least two fully staged operas each academic year, which are presented in the Auditorium.  Virtually every week there may be a student or faculty recital in the Recital Hall.  And the monthly Jewel Box series, which WFMT broadcasts with host Carolyn Paulin, brings in nationally and internationally renowned performers; and provides a showcase for the music department’s talented faculty.

We have four concerts; check here for a new concert each week.
