Collage Concerts Are Oct. 4

The concert will be so good you may want to see it twice. And you can.

Hope College's department of music will present a wide range of student talent for its annual Arts and Humanities Fair Concert, which will take place in Dimnent Memorial Chapel on Thursday, Oct. 4, at 11 a.m, and again at 8 p.m.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

The unusual "collage" concert presents sneak peeks of everything from the Chapel Choir to a woodwind trio, with a number of solos in between.

All the college's major musical ensembles--the Symphonette, Jazz Ensemble, Chapel Choir, Women's Choir, and Wind Symphony--are represented.

In addition, audience members get the chance to see individual students shine in solo performances, or student-led trio.

Organist Susan Dekam, a senior from Caledonia, will take advantage of the Dimnent sound with Bach's "Fugue in D Major," followed by sophomore pianist Emily Parkhurst of Lansing with Norman Dello Joio's "Allegro vivo e ritmico" for his Sonata No. 3.

Jennifer Walvoord, a violinist and senior from Holland, is presenting Nicolai Paganini's "Caprice No. 10 in G minor."

A Woodwind Trio featuring senior Jessica Schulte of Clarkston, flute, senior Piper Spratt of Kalamazoo, clarinet, and sophomore Phillip Pratt of Flint, bassoon, will be performing Robert Washburn's "Invention."

Schulte returns to the stage to perform Carl Reinecke's "Lento" from Concerto in D, Op. 283.

Camille Saint-Saens' work, "The Swan," will be played by cellist Nick Toben, a junior from Troy. Sandra Voorhees, a sophomore and mezzo soprano from West Bloomfield, sings Reynaldo Hahn's "Quand je fus pris au pavillon."
