A full, bombastic symphonic meal can leave you more exhausted than exhilarated. Sometimes you want just a small plate of beauty, a palate cleanser of joy, a demitasse of transcendence. That's when you head to White Recital Hall. Most days of the week and most weeks of the school year, a recital or a concert (student, faculty, ensemble, guest artist) allows a spontaneous plunge into euphoria that sluices the dust off an ordinary day. The level of performance can be superb, but even when it's merely competent, it's fun to be among an audience that's young, informed (fellow students) and invested (friends and family). Plus, the thrill comes cheap, with tickets usually less than $15 and often free. On your way out, look for an occasional ad hoc concession stand of homemade goodies run by enterprising students to raise money for future productions — a tasty way to support the arts while eating your cake, too.
