Lee School Of Music To Present Chamber Music Showcase

Friday, November 8, 2019

The Lee University School of Music will present its Chamber Music Showcase on Thursday at 7:30 p.m .in Squires Recital Hall. 

"Now in its fifth year, we are excited to see the chamber music program flourish,” said Dr. Gloria Chien, artist in residence at Lee. “There is genuine interest from both the instrumentalists and the vocalists.”

The concert will feature a variety of pieces including piano duos; a quartet for the guitar, flute, viola, and cello; and a song for the voice and guitar.

The works are composed by Georges Bizet, Felix Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Barbara Strozzi.

The School of Music chamber music program focuses on classical music performed by small ensembles. The participating students audition and are placed into duos, trios, or other groupings. Throughout the semester, these ensembles meet with faculty members from Lee’s School of Music each week for coaching and critique. The Chamber Music Showcase highlights the achievements the chamber ensembles have made throughout the semester.

The concert is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public. Squires Recital Hall is located in Lee’s Humanities Center on Parker Street.

For more information about the concert, contact the Lee University School of Music at 614-8240 or music@leeuniversity.edu.
