Recital hall named to honor Carolyn Love

Colorado Mesa University has named its recital hall in the Moss Performing Arts Center the Carolyn D. Love Recital Hall in recognition of a substantial endowment established by the late Carolyn Love’s husband, Bill.

Carolyn Love was a pianist and a skilled artist. When she passed away last December, her friends brought the idea of establishing scholarships for art and music students to Bill Love, who agreed it would be a wonderful way to remember her. The endowment will provide up to eight annual scholarships for music and fine art students.

The event began with a dedication by CMU President Tim Foster and remarks by Bill Love. Following the ceremony, guests were invited into the recital hall for a reception where Calvin Hofer, chairman of the music department, gave a champagne toast. Music students Tyler Clifton-Armenta and Teri Heffner performed. Clifton-Armenta, a clarinetist, is one of the first recipient of the Carolyn D. Love Memorial Scholarship.
