Three SUNY Oswego faculty members will perform works of Enesco, Copland, Brahms and others at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 9, in Sheldon Hall ballroom as part of the music department’s Focus on Faculty series.
Pianist Robert Auler, trumpeter Terrance Caviness and clarinetist Trevor Jorgensen will present a concert titled “Musical Journey.”
The performance will showcase Georges Enesco’s “Legend,” Henry Purcell’s “Sonata,” Halsey Stevens’ “Sonata,” Aaron Copland’s “Concerto” and Johannes Brahms’ “Sonata No. 2.”
As the musicians explore the works of these historically significant artists, the audience will experience the innovative literature of compositions that have delighted listeners with their construction and beauty, organizers said.
Jorgensen said the Focus on Faculty Series is both fine community entertainment and an important teaching tool for the music department.
“Although Rob and I perform nationally and internationally in various venues each year, these concerts are perhaps the most important pedagogically,” Jorgensen said. “It is vital for our music students to hear us play in order to put into context what we ask each of them to accomplish weekly in their own applied studio lessons.”
Tickets are $8 ($5 for SUNY Oswego students), and are available at all college box offices, online at tickets.oswego.edu, or by calling 312-2141.
Parking is included in the price of the ticket, and is available in the lots adjacent to and across Washington Boulevard from Sheldon Hall.
