String Faculty Gala Concert

January 12, 2018
Six faculty artists from the Baylor University School of Music will be joined by three guest artists in a String Faculty Gala Concert on Saturday, January 20, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Treasure Room of Armstrong Browning Library.
Baylor faculty will include violinist Eka Gogichashvili, violist Kathryn Steely, cellist Gary Hardie, double bassist Sandor Ostlund, pianist Kae Hosoda-Ayer, and composer/conductor Scott McAllister. The guest performers will be violinists Ricardo Gómez and Mia Orosco, along with guitarist Gavin Kelso.
According to Dr. Ostlund, who serves Baylor as Associate Professor of Double Bass and Coordinator of the String Area, the works on this concert “will span the gamut, from timeless, beloved masters, to an exciting world premiere of a brand-new piece by Baylor composer Scott McAllister.” Performed for the first time will be Dr. McAllister’s Cave Music.
Among the other selections on the program will be the “Scherzo” from Johannes Brahms’s Piano Quintet, the second movement from Henri Vieuxtemps’s Viola Sonata, Sandor Ostlund’s own Virtute, Pablo de Sarasate’s Navarra for two violins, and the lively opening movement from Paul Schoenfield’s Café Music.
Also to be heard is Benny Martin’s Me and My Fiddle for violin, double bass, and guitar, with Mia Orosco demonstrating her award-winning abilities as a country fiddler.
This concert is free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor University School of Music at 254-710-3991.
