FACULTY RECITAL FEATURES VARIETY, COLLABORATION
LA CROSSE, Wis.—Timothy Schorr, a Viterbo University professor of music, will present a Faculty Piano Recital on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the FAC Recital Hall.
The program will include "J. S. Bach's French Suite No. 5 in G Major," four "Songs without Words" by Felix Mendelssohn, and "Lament" by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich.
The performance of "Lament," a piece commissioned by Carnegie Hall to commemorate the new millennium, will be dedicated to all those affected by the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. In addition, Schorr will collaborate with soprano Diane Foust, also a Viterbo professor of music, in a performance of the evocative "Chansons de Bilitis" by Claude Debussy. The concert will conclude with a special appearance by former University of Wisconsin-La Crosse professor Joyce Grill, who will join Schorr for selections from her "Four-Hand Fun," a collection of original piano duets recently published by Warner Brothers.
The recital is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the music department at 608-796-3760.
