Quincy University Music Department will host its Annual Faculty Recital on Friday, September 9, 2016, at the Connie Niemann Center for Music (18th and Seminary Road). The performance begins at 7:30 pm and includes some of our faculty’s favorite repertoire.
Dr. Christine Damm, assistant professor of music and jazz ensemble director, will be performing “Preludes” by George Gershwin, arranged for solo clarinet by James Cohn. These three preludes include:
I. “Allegro ben ritmato e deciso”
II. “Andante con moto e poco rubato”
III. “Allegro ben ritmato e deciso”
Director of Bands and percussionist Bill Machold will be presenting “Anna” and “Lori” from “Songs for Vibes” by Ron Fink.
Amy Stollberg, director of choirs and vocal instructor, will be sharing beautiful arias from two of Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorios; “But the Lord is Mindful of His Own” from St. Paul and “O Rest in the Lord” from Elijah.
Adjunct faculty member Michael Saul, and his daughter Amanda Saul Ensing, will perform “Auf Dem Strom” (On the River) opus 119. This haunting Franz Schubert piece is for voice and piano with horn obbligato.
There will be light refreshments after the concert, which is free and open to the public.
