Lake Erie Music Department to Present Spring Musical Arts Concert
“Sesquicentennial Cantatina” honors College’s 150th anniversary
The Lake Erie Music Department will present its annual Spring Musical Arts Concert on Sunday, April 29 at 4 p.m. in Morley Music Hall.
The first half of the program will present a number of student and faculty instrumentalists and vocal soloists including junior, Marie Giosi, performing two preludes for piano by Chopin and voice faculty member, Jean Priddy, rendering “Now Close the Windows,” by Bain Murray.
The concert will conclude with the first and only performance of the “Sesquicentennial Cantatina,” written by Professor Paul Gothard III, as a closing to the College’s celebration of its 150th anniversary of its founding.
The Cantatina is a work that will honor the College’s history and longevity through narrative text, vocal, choral and instrumental treatments. Many facets of the College community will be drawn together for this effort. The work will feature the Lake Erie College Community Chorus and Flute Choir; faculty soloists, Judith Elias and Jean Priddy; community vocal soloist, Jennifer Brewer; Mark Bell, Ph.D., assistant professor of German and French, performing on the newly-restored Carol Morris E. M. Skinner organ; and LEC business manager, Andy Merrill, will make his first Music Department appearance as narrator.
The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Paul Gothard at 440.375.7030.
