2014 Artist Series
and High School Choral & Band Festival

Every year the University has the privilege to set aside a day to appreciate the ministry of music. This year, our Artist Series will feature the music of Dr. Dan Suttles, Associate Professor of Piano at Liberty University and PIU Alumnus ('77).  The event will take place on Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 10:30am – 7:00pm.  Our featured musician will minister during our Thursday morning chapel service from 10:45am -11:30am at Salem Baptist Church. All are welcome and this event is free.

High school music instructors and their instrumental and choir students are invited to a full day of activities that will conclude with a student concert at 6:00pm (Note: instrumentalists should be able to play Grade Level 1-2 ½ music). Students will have the opportunity to learn and rehearse under highly qualified musicians and university instructors, rehearse with a variety of students from Piedmont and other area Christian schools, experience the uniqueness of Piedmont’s campus, where students are not just a number but are instructed and mentored by faculty and staff, and, finally, enjoy outstanding Christian music by musicians who have excelled in both the secular and Christian world.

A small charge of $12.50 per person will cover lunch and dinner and will be due by check-in time at 10:15am the day of the event. You may pay with a Visa, Mastercard or Discover prior to the event by calling 336.714.7937 or by mailing a check to:
