FACULTY PERFORMERS SERENADE SPRING

HATTIESBURG -- Faculty artists in the School of Music at The University of Southern Mississippi will present their last concert of the 2003-04 Camerata Concerts: Faculty Artist Chamber Music Series March 11 in the Mannoni Performing Arts Center auditorium.

The concert opens with Serge Prokofiev's Quintet, op. 39. The performance will feature violinist Stephen Redfield, violist Michael Kimber, oboist Patricia Malone, clarinetist Wilbur Moreland, and double bassist Juan Carlos Peña.

"While the music for this concert might seem an odd fit for the concert's theme 'Spring Serenade,' it is some of the most fascinating chamber music of the past century," explained Kimber, performer and coordinator of the series. "Serge Prokofiev's Quintet for woodwinds and strings, written for a trapeze act, is high-spirited, witty, and brilliant."

Next on the program will be Anton Webern's eight-minute Concerto for piano solo accompanied by pairs of woodwinds, brass, and strings. Under the baton of conductor Gary Adam, pianist Joseph Brumbeloe will join Malone, Moreland, Kimber, and Redfield, in addition to Kenneth Ortlepp on French horn, Joel Treybig on trumpet, and Wes Parker on trombone.

"Webern's concerto is one in miniature and a superb example of this Viennese master's craft," Kimber said.

After a brief intermission, the concert finale will be George Crumb's "Vox balaenae (Voice of the Whale)." Kimber described this work for flute, cello, and piano as a "stunningly evocative soundscape full of unusual and remarkable effects."

Flutist Carolyn Treybig and cellist Alexander Russakovsky will join pianist Brumbeloe in the performance of this work.

The 7:30 p.m. concert will be presented in the Mannoni Performing Arts Center auditorium. Tickets are $8 for general admission and $5 for Southern Miss faculty, staff, and students, senior citizens and children under 12. Tickets may be purchased at the door or through the Southern Miss Ticket Office at (601) 266-5418 or 800-844-8425 or online at www.usm.edu/tickets. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the School of Music's scholarship fund.
