Baylor Faculty Perform "Discover the Colors of Music"

October 26, 2020
Five members of the Baylor University School of Music faculty will perform a virtual concert called “Discover the Colors of Music” on Saturday, November 14, beginning at 7:30 p.m. This one-hour-long concert will tackle the idea of colors in sound, exploring how performers can change the colors of the sounds they produce on their instruments in order to better serve the ensemble and musical expressions of a given piece.
Due to the current pandemic situation, the concert will be presented without an in-person audience. However, viewers at home will be able to enjoy the performance by going to the School of Music website for an online livestreaming opportunity.
The faculty artists who will participate are Patricia Shih (violin), Kathryn Steely (viola), Philip Borter (cello), Masha Popova (flute), and Ran Kampel (clarinet).
Opening the program will be the first movement, “Allegro non tanto,” from the Quartet No. 3 in D major for Clarinet, Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 7, written in 1821 by Swedish composer Bernhard Henrik Crusell.
Next, the three string players will perform the opening movement, “Marcia,” of Hungarian composer Ern'' Dohnányi’s Serenade in C major for String Trio, Op. 10, a five-movement piece dating from 1902.
The program closes with The Life of Birds, a six-movement chamber work by American composer Mason Bates. This 2008 composition is scored for flute, clarinet, violin, and cello.
This live concert will be streamed from the stage of Roxy Grove Hall. To join the virtual audience, simply visit the School of Music website by clicking here. The concert will be followed by a short Q&A session for viewers from home, via social media.
