FACULTY BRASS QUINTET IN CONCERT AT TRINITY
-- The Southern Arts Brass Quintet, a faculty ensemble at The
University of Southern Mississippi, will present a concert at 6
p.m. March 29 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Hattiesburg. Formed
in 1968, the ensemble includes Joel Treybig, assistant professor
of trumpet; Ken Ortlepp, assistant professor of horn; Marta Hofacre,
professor of trombone; Richard Perry, assistant professor of tuba;
and graduate teaching assistant Jake Walburn, performing on trumpet.
The concert is free and open to the public. The program includes
a variety of Germanic music for brass quintet, from the Renaissance
age to present day. Works will include dances by Renaissance composer
Michael Praetorius and 20th-century composer Bernhard Heiden, Bach's
"Contrapunctus IX" (illustrating his exceptional skill
at fugal writing), and two lyric pieces by Brahms and Mendelssohn.
Also on the program is "Mozart on Parade," a collection
of motives from Mozart overtures, symphonies, and concerti that
were masterfully collated together by Peter Schikele for the Canadian
Brass. The recital will close with a clever arrangement of Kurt
Weill's famous song "Mack the Knife" from his successful
Threepenny Opera. For more information, call (601) 266-6937.
