Albion College Music Faculty Recital Showcases a Plethora of Skill

From Handel to Hummel to Hamilton, a diverse musical journey marks the Albion College Music Department’s fall Faculty Recital on Sunday, Sept. 24 at 4 p.m. in Goodrich Chapel. Included in the program is “Total Eclipse,” from George Frideric Handel’s oratorio Samson as sung by professor and choir director Clayton Parr. Matthew Kay, professor of trumpet, performs all three movements of Johann Nepomuk Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto in E flat Major, and professor of clarinet Sarah Manasreh plays Sonata for Clarinet by the Les Six composer Francis Poulenc. Says staff accompanist Nicholas Laban, “The program is an exciting and unconventional mix of pieces, ranging from full performances of standard works, to more experimental and contemporary pieces, to a trio of 'mad songs.' It has been an immense joy to collaborate with our talented faculty members, each of whom brings emotive power and technical finesse." This concert is free and the public is invited to attend. For more information, contact the Albion College Music Department at 517/629-0481 or .
