Doyle is a graduate student majoring in guitar performance in the School of Music at Indiana State.

Students of the CSA and Kara Claybrook will present voice recitals in the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts, Recital Hall at 5 p.m. Sunday, May 5. Claybrook, a soprano, is a native of Terre Haute. An experienced teacher, she is a member of the teaching staff at Indiana State University's School of Music as well as the CSA, where she offers vocal instruction to community members of all ages.

In collaboration with the Children's Museum, the CSA will feature performances by private and class students on Saturday May 11 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. May's theme at the Museum is mystery. During the event, entitled "Musical Mystery Mania!", the audience is invited to interact with performers by guessing songs and participating in a sing-a-long.

The Community School of the Arts is one of the new programs at Indiana State funded through the Unbounded Possibilities initiative. The CSA provides hands-on arts learning experiences for children, youth, and adults in the Wabash Valley while providing ISU students who are majoring in the arts outstanding opportunities for experiential learning through teaching.
