Why:

Soprano Hillary Hight will sign copies of her solo CD‚ "Americans in Paris‚" released by ACA Digital last fall. The CD is a vocal celebration of the music of Americans who found their musical inspiration in Paris. Hight‚ a professor of music at KSU‚ found much of her musical inspiration as a student in Paris where she studied with Nadia Boulanger. On this CD‚ Hight includes works by Samuel Barber‚ Leonard Bernstein‚ Charles Ives and others. The piece "Six Maxims of de la Roche Foucauld‚" was written especially for Hight by Robert X. Rodriguez‚ another of Ms. Boulanger's American students.
