by Richard Veit
Eleven low-brass students in the studio of David Graves, Lecturer in Tuba and Euphonium at Baylor University's School of Music, will present a concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, in Meadows Recital Hall in the Glennis McCrary Music Building.
The program will open with the Baylor Euphotuba Quartet, who will play an arrangement by Peter Rauch of the overture to Gioacchino Rossini final opera, William Tell. These four outstanding musicians -- Colin Campbell (Waco), Matt Shipes (Dallas), Daniel Southerland (Canton) and Jamie Yarbrough (Odessa) -- also will perform the Quartet for Tubas by Paul Holmes and an arrangement by Arno Hermann of German composer Carl Teike's celebrated march, Alte Kameraden ("Old Comrades").
Following intermission, the entire Euphotuba Ensemble will be on stage for performances of Power: A Rock Fanfare by John Stevens, Richard Thurston's arrangement of Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Johann Sebastian Bach, the Denis Winter setting of Ronde e Saltarelle by Tielman Susato and -- with Dean William V. May conducting -- a transcription by Steve Hanson of the slow movement from the Organ Symphony of Camille Saint-Saëns.
The program will conclude with the catchy and popular La Cumparsita by G. Matos Rodríguez, featuring guest percussionist Britton Matthews in an arrangement by David Schanke.
The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at (254) 710-3991.
