The Missouri University of Science and Technology performing arts department will present “An Evening of Chamber Music” at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 21, in Leach Theater of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
Tickets are $5 for the general public and free for S&T students. They can be purchased at the door the night of the performance.
“This will be a truly eclectic evening of music with something for every taste, from the early classical music of Haydn and Hook to the very modern contemporary sounds of our Winter Drumline,” says Dr. Robert J. Cesario, assistant professor of arts, languages and philosophy, and conductor of the orchestra. “The sound quality and intensity will range from the quite whispers of strings and flutes to the bone shaking rhythmic vitality of drums, cymbals and various percussion instruments.”
Missouri S&T’s Chamber Orchestra will play “British Masters Suite,” including “Marching Song,” by Gustav Holst; “Nimrod” from “Enigma Variations,” by Edward Elgar; “Sine Nomine,” by Ralph Vaughan-Williams; and “Shepherd’s Hey,” an English morris dance, by Percy Grainger.
Members of S&T’s Symphony Orchestra will perform a Haydn string quartet (Frankie Stevens, Allyson Johnson, Rich Sankovich and Bonnie Wiebe); Milhaud trio for clarinet, violin and piano (Sankovich, Stevens and Jing Chang); and a James Hook flute trio (Chris Midha, Lisa Martin and Erin Wright-Parsons). A piece for clarinet and piano will be performed by Cesario, accompanied by Chang.
