-- Faculty artists in the School of Music
at The University of Southern Mississippi will present the fifth season
of Camerata Concerts: Faculty Artist Chamber Music Series, opening
at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21 in Marsh Auditorium.
"As in previous seasons, the Camerata Concert
series will feature a wide variety of ensembles performing pieces
from diverse eras," said Dr. Joseph Brumbeloe, coordinator
of the series and associate professor of music at Southern Miss.
"This first concert will afford the first opportunity for most
in the community to hear two of the School of Music's newest faculty
members, pianist Amber Shay and violist Peter Neubert."
The "October Surprise" concert opens with
William Bolcom's "Session II for Violin and Viola" (1966)
and features associate professor of music Stephen Redfield, violin,
and Neubert, viola. For the following piece, Beethoven's "Piano
Trio No. 5 in D," also known as "Ghost," Redfield
will be joined by colleagues Alexander Russakovsky, cello, and Shay,
"Beethoven's 'Piano Trio No. 5' gained the nickname
'Ghost' after Beethoven's death," Shay explained.
