FEMC Recital: Spring Breaks

March 24 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Friday Evening Music Club of the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce our March recital, to be held will be held this Friday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the Campana Chapel and Lecture Hall on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh-Greensburg (UPG).

Among the performers on Friday (we may have a surprise pianist joining the line-up!) are Club members, Dr. TJ Maroon, piano, and Louise Daniels, oboe. Dr. Maroon will be honoring Ukraine by performing two piano pieces by Ukraine’s best-known living composer, Valentin Silvestrov, who is now a refugee living in Germany. He will play the 2nd movement of Kitsch-Music (1977), and Three Bagatelles, Op.1 (2005). Ms. Daniels, who directs and performs with the Seton Hill University double reed quartet, will feature the group in movements from Quartet in F Major, FaWV N:F1, for two oboes and two bassoons by Johann Friedrich Fasch, a composer who crossed paths with J.S. Bach and other well-known baroque composers from the Leipzig area. SHU students in the group are oboist Alma Podoletz, and bassoonists Madilyn Perleberg and Angelina Brennsteiner. Pianist, Austin An, a student of member Edward M. Kuhn, Jr., will perform the music of two very different time periods on Friday evening. Nikolai Kapustin, a Soviet composer of Russian-Jewish descent, was born in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, in the same year as Silvestrov.  Prelude, Op. 53, No. 23 in Jazz Style, represents the composer’s favorite genre of music.  Austin will then turn back time to the classical period, and play the 1st movement of Beethoven’s Sonata No. 17, nicknamed “The Tempest.”

Admission is free to club members and voluntary donations are accepted from non-members at the door.  All are invited to a reception following the recital.
