Interested in hearing amazing live music performed in one of the most beautiful and historic buildings in northern Indiana? Come out to the majestic Ruthmere Museum to catch a glimpse of the musical talents that surround you.

Built in 1910 and located at 302 E. Beardsley Ave. in Elkhart, the three-story Ruthmere Museum has teamed up with students from the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts to showcase various performing arts talents.

The partnered groups will be conducting the Student Spotlight Recital within the walls of the mansion at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 19. The event is free to IU South Bend students and staff. General public admission is $10.

“The musicians will be further exposed to great pieces of art and the art community will get to hear some great music,” said flautist Danielle Krug, a senior at Adams High School who plans on attending the event.

Some of the musical pieces will include movements from Rachmaninoff’s “Cello Sonata in G,” Vincent Persichetti’s “Piano Sonata No. 3,” Franz Strauss’ “Concerto, Op. 8” and a Mozart trio, according to a press release.

The performance will include a reception with light refreshments, which would be a great opportunity to chat with some of IUSB’s passionate and talented musicians.

“I think this is a really cool way to merge communities through music,” said Krug. “Whoever came up with the idea to have students perform at an old museum is a genius.”
