Music Faculty Recital Spring 2022
From Jennifer Gardner
Opening welcome by Music Program Coordinator, Dr. Kathleen Ruhleder |
“I'd like to welcome you to our spring 2020 (*2022) faculty recital. We’re really hoping this is the last one that we're doing virtually and putting online. I would love to see you all at our events ??? and later this semester we’ve got lots of great in-person events coming up as well. But we're so glad that you're here to support HCC faculty as we share some really fantastic music with you.
So on tonight's program you're going to see, what we typically have on these recitals are some shorter pieces that really highlight some of the skills of the performers. You’re going to hear some personal compositions being performed by the composer which is so exciting and then we have something a little different at the end of our program. We're going to have a much longer piece, about 17 minutes long, and really shows off the skills of one of our adjunct faculty members, Doug DeVries performing on the flute with a string quartet. It really shows how incredibly challenging and incredibly rewarding it can be to record a much longer piece. The type of focus required for that is pretty amazing so I hope you all will enjoy tonight's program.
Next week is our annual Black History Month concert which will also be online and we'd love to have you joining us for that on the 28th and after that check out the calendar of events for all the cool in-person concerts we have coming up later this semester.
