Fri., Sept. 7, 12 p.m.
Recitals at Noon Austria and Germany come to church when Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Robert Schumann take center stage at University of Tampa’s Sykes Chapel, where violinist Nancy Chang, viola player Lei Liu, cellist Helga Winold and pianist Grigorios Zamparas come together for the first recital of UT’s new monthly music series. Free to attend, which is pretty offensive since this spot is one of the most beautiful places to hear music in Tampa.

Best Pipes: Sykes Chapel at University of Tampa
Sun., Sept. 9, 3 p.m.
A French Baroque Harpsichord Recital: The Ordres of François Couperin Not sure if you saw the blurb on the Friday recital at University of Tampa’s Sykes chapel, but a show here is one that any self-respecting Tampa resident should experience. UT faculty member Duncan MacMillan mans the harpsichord, and the works of François Couperin — which represent the very refined pinnacle of French Baroque musical thought — take the spotlight when four complete ordres from the “Quatrième livre de Pièces de clavecin” are performed, for free, whether you’re a student or not.
Sykes Chapel at University of Tampa, 401 W. Kennedy Blvd, Tampa. No cover. ut.edu.
