Two opportunities for musical entertainment will be offered over the next week by different groups at Pittsburg State University.
The choirs of PSU will present their annual fall concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 6, at McCray Recital Hall. The University Choir, PSU Chorale, and women's ensemble will be under the direction of Susan Marchant.
Graduate students Hannah Brewer and Daniel Benitz will serve as accompanists for the concert. Julia Penner will be featured as flute soloist in John Rutter's "Musica Dei Domini," and percussion students of Professor James Clanton will assist in the performance of Sydney Guillaume's "Mama Afrika." Vocal soloists will include Charlotte Evans, Kimberly Arzoian, and Andrew Hayse.
The evening will also include a silent auction of gourmet desserts, which will be on display at the concert. A concurrent sale of other baked goods will also be offered. Proceeds from these projects will benefit the choirs' 2010 Spring Tour to Ireland.
In a second fall offering, two PSU faculty members will perform a recital at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 11, also at McCray.
The recital will feature both solo and collaborative performances by Music Professors Patrick Howle, baritone, and Reena Berger Natenberg, piano. Performances will include works by Clara Shumann, Robert Schumann, Claude Debussy, Gabriel Faure´, and Francis Poulenc.
Both performances are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the PSU Department of Music at 620-235-4466.
