Exhibits from the School of Art and performances from the School of Music are part of the schedule.

Texas Tech University's J.T. & Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts (TCVPA) houses the School of Art, the School of Music and the School of Theatre & Dance. Each school gives students, faculty, staff and visiting artists opportunities to exhibit and perform works on campus and in the community throughout the year.

Here is what is on the slate for March:

University Symphony Orchestra Concert

The School of Music's University Symphony Orchestra will perform a concert at 7:30 p.m. March 4 in Hemmle Recital Hall. Titled "Evening of Passion," the ensemble will perform works from Mozart, George Gershwin and Rodgers & Hammerstein.

René West: City Walls

The School of Art will host the "René West: City Walls" exhibition March 20 to April 14 at the SRO Photo Gallery in the School of Art building. The exhibition showcases West's photographs of street posters and how they erode if left on buildings for long periods of time.

Assembling Animal Communication

The School of Art also will host the "Assembling Animal Communication" exhibition beginning March 22 in the Landmark Gallery in the School of Art building. Curated by Kevin Chua, an associate professor of 18th and 19th century European and Southeast Asian art history, this exhibition seeks to grapple with animal communication in a post-human way. The exhibition coincides with the "Animal/Language" interdisciplinary conference, and a reception will be hosted at 6:30 p.m. March 22 in the Landmark Gallery.

The Lubbock Chorale's Annual Gala: South Pacific

The Lubbock Chorale, housed within the School of Music, will host its annual banquet at 6:30 p.m. March 23 at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center. The event will feature dinner and performances from Rodgers & Hammerstein's "South Pacific." All money raised will contribute to scholarships for students in the School of Music. Tickets are available through Select-A-Seat locations.
