The Music Building's Martha-Ellen Tye Recital Hall will be a busy venue, with five fall performances scheduled over the next 10 days. Several ensembles will be performing, including student choral groups, a quartet and a collection of big brass specialists.

Men's choir
A musical double-header by the Iowa Statesmen kicks off the lineup on Sunday, Oct. 30, with shows at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. The 149-member men's chorus, led by music professor James Rodde, will perform its three-part program at each show, including a segment of selections by the Shy of a Dozen a cappella ensemble. Tickets are $5 ($3 for students).

Ten students, playing a mix of tubas, euphoniums and trombones, will don costumes and perform skits as part of a free "Octubaween" performance at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 31. Music lecturer Christian Carichner said the fun, family-friendly event will feature Halloween and tuba-inspired music themes.

"Be prepared to hear the tuba do things you've never heard before," he said.

Women's choir
The 74-member Cantamus women's choir, led by lecturer Kathleen Rodde, will perform at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5. Tickets are $5 ($3 for students).

Piano quartet
The Amara Piano Quartet will perform a free concert on Sunday, Nov. 6 (7:30 p.m.). The faculty ensemble includes assistant professor Mei-Hsuan Huang on piano, assistant professor Boro Martinic-Jercic on violin, professor Jonathan Sturm on viola and professor George Work on cello.
