Editorial Review

The music department at Catholic uses the Ward Recital Hall. This charming building was originally intended as a facility for a school of liturgical music; consequently, it resembles a chapel. Of particular note is the use of this hall by the university's Music Theater Research Project, which stages concert versions of historic musicals. The project has revived such early Broadway musicals as "Florodora," "Sally" and "Irene."
