The Williams College Department of Music will present Elizabeth Morse in a harp recital at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5, in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall on the college campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Together with harpsichordist Edwin Lawrence, Morse will perform the Concerto in B flat by George Fridric Handel.
