Each year members of the senior class close out their Skidmore careers with a variety of projects that reflect the culmination of their undergraduate education. We’ve decided to give a shout out to the music students completing senior recitals in the majestic Arthur Zankel Music Center’s Helen Filene Ladd Concert Hall. Be sure to check them out and show support for Skidmore music.
