BOZEMAN - Montana State University soprano Elizabeth Croy and her colleagues will begin a three-concert series on Friday, Sept. 23, in the MSU School of Music.

The first concert, featuring French songs, will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Reynolds Recital Hall in Howard Hall along 11th Avenue across from the MSU duck pond.

The "European Song Tour" will include three song recitals during the 2011-2012 academic year. Croy will be joined by Julie Gosswiller on piano, Angela Ahn on violin, and Sarah Biber on cello, along with MSU music students. Subsequent stops on the song tour will include "Viva Italia" this fall and a "Schubertiade" in the spring.

The Songs of Eric Funk" and "Partners through Song: Children's Literature and Classical Song." Ahn is a member of the Ahn Trio. Biber joined the MSU School of Music in 2010.
