Faculty Select Series: Tony Weinstein, piano

Tuesday, March 15

7:30 p.m.

Green Center, Thompson Recital Hall

Artists frequently treat with thinly veiled condescension the innocent request to name their favorite composers and the pieces they hold dearest. In designing this program, Weinstein simply shuns this unseemly attitude and has picked his favorite pieces by his favorite composers. Signature works by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Prokofiev.

Student Recital Hour

10:20 a.m.

Green Center, Thompson Recital Hall

The School of Music's weekly recital hour features live music by talented School of Music students and occasional guests. This week, take a trip with us around the world as students Natalia Fumero '18 and Kazuki Hanado '17 lead the second annual International Music Festival.

Faculty Select Series: Organ Plus -- Carla Edwards and Friends

Thursday, March 17

7:30 p.m.

Green Center, Kresge Auditorium

In 1994, Calcante Recordings, an independent record label, approached DePauw professor and University organist Carla Edwards about her interest in making a CD of previously unrecorded works. For this project, Edwards chose a program of compositions for organ and other instruments to also showcase some of her colleagues at DePauw.

She titled the recording Carla Edwards and Friends. Now, almost 22 years later, she is looking to come full circle with these pieces, as well as introduce some new ones.

All composed in the 20th and 21st centuries, the works chosen for this Faculty Select concert highlight Edwards's interest in a great variety of modern compositional styles: two are very colorful, tonal and calm; one tongue-in-cheek, jazzy and playful, while another is serious in mood and style. Thursday's performance culminates in the world premiere of "November Skyline," a solo organ work by faculty composer Scott Perkins, commissioned by Edwards.
