HATTIESBURG -- Voice faculty and soprano Maryann Kyle of the School of Music at The University of Southern Mississippi will present a faculty recital at 7:30 p.m. April 30 in Marsh Auditorium. Her scheduled program boasts several works by renowned composers, including Richard Strauss, Claude Debussy, Cole Porter, Giacomo Puccini and others.

Fellow faculty members will join Kyle for the evening, including Ken Ortlepp on horn and pianist Joe Brumbeloe, who also has arranged two pieces by Gershwin and Porter for this recital. Guest pianist Theresa Sanchez will also collaborate. Kyle said the first half of her recital would be more classical in nature. For the second half of the concert, she has chosen to perform more contemporary and "fun" songs of the musical theatre genre, including "Art is Calling for Me (I Long to Be A Prima Donna)" from "The Enchantress"; "Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life" from "Naughty Marietta"; and "I Hate Men" from "Kiss Me Kate!" The recital is free to the public. For more information, call (601) 266-6059.



HATTIESBURG -- To preview a July concert that will be given at the European Handbell Festival in Amsterdam, Holland, the Carillon Handbell Choir at The University of Southern Mississippi will perform at 2:30 p.m. May 2 at First Presbyterian Church in Hattiesburg.

Organized in 1985 by Dr. Larry Smith, professor of music in the School of Music at Southern Miss, the Carillon Handbell Choir has developed a regional, national, and international reputation and has garnered high praise and respect in the handbell world. The group performs a wide range of handbell literature including familiar church hymns, traditional classical arrangements and original compositions for handbells.

In May, the group will present concerts on a mini-tour through Arkansas, ending in Greenwood. In addition to the ringing at the European Festival, the choir will perform in Trier, Germany. As with all their previous tours, Smith and the students raised their own travel funds.

Admission to the home concert is free and open to the public, although donations will be accepted. For more information, call Smith at (601) 266-5826.
