11/24/2008 Annual recital to showcase chamber music at Linfield
McMINNVILLE – Six Linfield College music ensembles will present the annual chamber music recital on Tuesday, Dec. 9, at 4 p.m. in the Delkin Hall of the Vivian A. Bull Music Center at Linfield.
The afternoon performance will showcase students from the Linfield chamber music class, along with community members, and their work throughout the semester. The class is divided into small performance groups, each led by a different instructor, according to Joan Paddock, professor of music.
“The small chamber music groups give musicians an opportunity to know and trust each other,” Paddock said. “The music is a result of decisions made by the group and suggestions made by the coach, which then leads to self-coaching.”
The ensembles include the Linfield Brass Quintet and the Linfield Wind Symphony, both led by Paddock; the Linfield Flute Choir, coached by Denise Westby, adjunct professor of music; the Linfield Saxophone Saxtet, coached by Steve Kravitz, adjunct professor of music; the Linfield “Mello Cellos,” coached by Sherill Roberts, adjunct professor of music; and the Linfield Bluegrass Ensemble, coordinated by Faun Tiedge, chair of the music department.
The recital will feature a variety of music composed by John Iveson, David Angel, Antonio Vivaldi, Daniel Kallman, Stuart Morison and others.
The recital is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Linfield Music Department at 503-883-2275.
