MANKATO, Minn. – The Department of Music presents distinguished classical pianist Charles Asche (pictured) on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Elias J. Halling Recital Hall of the Earley Center for Performing Arts, 320 Maywood Ave. The concert is sponsored by the Bunny Just Piano Festival Endowment and is the last event of the four-day festival set for Feb. 16-19.
