Lake Erie’s Music Department to present annual Spring Musical Concert
The Music Department of Lake Erie College will present its annual Spring Musical Arts Concert on Sunday, April 25 at 4 p.m. in the Morley Music Building.
This year, the concert will include performances by Lake Erie senior, Deborah Hoffman, collaborative pianist, in partial fulfillment of her Bachelor of Fine Arts requirements. Ms. Hoffman will be performing La plus que lente, by Claude Debussy, as well as the Sonata for Flute and Piano and Sonata piano four hands, both by Francis Poulenc.
The concert will also feature the Lake Erie College Community Chorus and Flute Choir in works by Fauré, Poulenc, Gabrieli, Rutter and Zeira. This program will mark the first time a composition by the popular and distinguished choral composer, Morten Lauridsen, will be performed, when the Chorus renders the rich sentiments of his work, Sure on This Shining Night.
Flautist Judith Elias will appear as soloist in two choral works and the College organist, Mark Bell, will perform on the Morley Skinner organ. Anya Hurley and John Roskos, voice students of Jean Priddy, will perform works by Puccini and Vivaldi, and student pianist, Patrick Shelby, will perform the Deux Arabesques, by Claude Debussy.
The concert is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. For additional information, please contact Paul Gothard, at 440.375.7030.
