Long Beach -- Each Tuesday this fall semester Southern Miss Gulf Coast students and faculty will enjoy a musical serenade at the Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.

"Tuesday Afternoon Musicales" will feature artists from the university's College of Arts and Letters performing in the lobby of the Advanced Education Center from 5:45 until 6:45 p.m.

"The purpose of this informal series is to heighten awareness of music on our campus and provide those leaving and arriving (with) a musical diversion," said Ken Malone, chief operating officer for the Gulf Park campus. "It creates an arts-enhanced environment."

Admission is free and the event is informal. People may stay for the entire performance, stand for a few moments or simply pass by. Students may also choose to enjoy a quick salad or sandwich from the Eagle's Roost, the campus' catering cart, while enjoying the recital.

Scheduled performances for the fall semester are: the Southern Vocal Ensemble, Oct. 26; the Romero String Quartet, Nov. 2; the Southern Chamber Chorale, Nov. 9; pianist Gerardo Fernandez, Nov. 16; the Romero String Quartet, Nov. 23; Southern Sea Breeze, Nov. 30; and Gerardo Fernandez, Dec. 7.

Performances for the spring semester will be announced in January. For more information, call (601) 266-4001.
