Music for piano, voice and big band

Dickinson College faculty will perform two concerts in September. Both are free and open to the public. 

Piano Recital: Current
Sunday, Sept. 22, 4 p.m.
Rubendall Recital Hall, Weiss Center for the Arts

Joined by baritone and Assistant Professor of Music James Martin and Heare Ensemble (piano, cello and flute), pianist and Professor of Music Jennifer Blyth examines landscape/waterscape as history, and as an exhibit of consequences. The program seeks to explore aural images and narratives of water from multiple perspectives through works for trio and voice and for solo piano and voice. Rivers, oceans and waterways converge as nature, habitat, artifact, system, problem, wealth, ideology, history, place and aesthetic in a recital designed to complement the Edward Burtynsky exhibit at The Trout Gallery. This performance will feature a video installation by Associate Professor of Art Todd Arsenault, alongside compositions by Ravel, Cowell, Crumb, Copland and Rzweski.

River City Big Band
Friday, Sept. 27, 8 p.m.
Anita Tuvin Schlechter Auditorium

Contributing faculty members Dave Zygmunt (drums), Greg Strohman (trombone) and Jeff Wohlbach (trumpet) will be joined by members of Harrisburg’s River City Big Band for an evening of big-band jazz. Made up of the finest Central Pennsylvania musicians, the band plays charts from the books of Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Thad Jones and Stan Kenton, as well as originals from members and the local jazz community.
