A Tempo: Rider Signs Purchase and Sale Agreement for Westminster

Jun 21, 2018

Rider University this past week announced that it had signed a purchase and sale agreement to sell Westminster Choir College to a group of three entities affiliated with Beijing-based Kaiwen Education. This Saturday (6/23 at 7 pm) A Tempo looks at what the new agreement adds to ongoing discussions over the possible sale of the school and its future. Westminster this week was inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame. 

Westminster Choir College was inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame. Anne Sears, Westminster's Director of External Affairs (center), accepted the medallion on behalf of the college from Anne Meier Baker (l), Director of Music and Opera for the National Endowment of the Arts, and Earl Rivers, a board member of the American Classical Music Hall of Fame and director of Choral Studies at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.

A Tempo host Rachel Katz will also reach out to some New Jersey arts organizations in response to last weekend's shooting at Art All Night in Trenton, an event that for 12 years had showcased the city's thriving arts and cultural world.
