Welcome Concert September 8
School is in and the HSU Music faculty presents its annual Welcome Concert on Saturday September 8 at 5 p.m., inaugurating the newly refurbished Fulkerson Recital Hall.
This year’s concert includes the Trumpet Consort von Humboldt conducted by Gil Cline, performing the program they recently played at the Historic Brass Symposium in New York City. Besides the Fulkerson Hall refit, a new instrument will premiere: the piano-carillon. Daniela Mineva plays two pieces on this instrument, as well performing a Beethoven sonata on piano, with violinist Cindy Moyer.
The eclectic concert also features Dan Aldag on jazz trombone, percussion by Eugene Novotny and Howard Kaufman, vocal selections by Elisabeth Harrington, a string quartet and other group and solo performances. The program appears here below.
Concertgoers can meet and greet the players and other HSU Music Department faculty and staff at an open reception immediately after the late afternoon performance. The concert itself is the year’s best opportunity to sample music by a number of faculty players at HSU.
The HSU faculty Welcome Concert begins at 5 p.m. on Saturday September 8 in the Fulkerson Recital Hall on the HSU campus in Arcata. Tickets are $8/$3 students and seniors from HSU Ticket Office (826-3928) or at the door. An HSU Department of Music production.
