Thursday Musical Artist Series
November 8, 2018 @ 10:30 am$15
On this program, Ariana Wegley presents the “Sonata for Solo Cello” by George Crumb (b. 1929). This sonata, dedicated to his mother, is designed around a series of memorable pitch centers, that imitate the function of tonal progressions. In this relatively short sonata, Crumb offers a deeply thoughtful and evocative musical experience that certainly captivates players and listeners alike.
Also on the program is percussionist Bob Adney, an instructor at MacPhail Center for Music. Bob has chosen to celebrate Thursday Musical’s addition of percussion to their Young Artist Scholarship competition by performing some of the students’ possible selections. Composers include Bob Becker (b. 1947), Bart Quartier (b. 1961), and Paul Smadbeck (b.1955).
