Faculty & Friends Concert Series Opens Sept. 15

The Department of Music Faculty & Friends Concert Series opens on Tuesday, September 15, with a performance by Assistant Professor Carl DuPont, bass-baritone, and Associate Professor Mira Frisch, cellist. They will be joined by accompanists Dr. Brian Arreola, also of the UNC Charlotte Department of Music, and Dr. Gregory Thompson, associate professor of music at Winston-Salem State University.

The program features music for combined cello, voice and piano, including an aria from J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew’s Passion and settings of traditional African American Spirituals. Also on the program is music that showcases each musician individually, such as an aria from Wagner’s opera Tannhäuser, three songs by African American composer Robert Owens, the Ballade in F Minor by Chopin and a set of variations by Niccolò Paganini, adapted for cello by Luigi de Silva, performed entirely on one string.

The concert takes place at 7:30 PM in the Rowe Recital Hall. Tickets are $18 for general admission, $12 for UNC Charlotte faculty and staff, $10 for seniors and $8 for students and are available online or by calling 704-687-1849.
