Free concert is Sept. 27 at T. Furth Center's Ryan Concert Hall

As a descriptive word, "academics" doesn't do much in the way of expressing what learning at Trine is really like. Here, knowledge is lived. Our students and faculty put their knowledge to work in ways that solve real problems facing real communities throughout Indiana, across the region, and around the world. At Trine you'll see that learning is never some static thing. It's what challenges and inspires us all at once.

Cordis to entertain with chamber-rock

Enjoy a free concert on Saturday and surround yourself in the beauty and comfort of the well-appointed Ryan Concert Hall in the T. Furth Center for Performing Arts on the campus of Trine University.

Trine University’s first free concert features Cordis, a chamber-rock foursome. Cordis redefines contemporary chamber music by blending custom-made and traditional ethnic instruments to create a signature sound. The ensemble is built upon cello, concert cimbalom, piano and percussion. Performances also feature unusual creations such as the electric mbira, melodica and what Cordis calls the “world’s longest playing cylinder-driven music box.”

This year, the quartet also began integrating new instruments into its unique sound, including a Kelstone nune, a Victrola talking machine, electric cello and an electric cimbalom.                                              

Everyone is invited to the free concert at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, in the T. Furth Center for Performing Arts, Ryan Concert Hall, 500 W. Maumee St., Angola. First come, first seated; doors open at 6 p.m.
