April performances include last faculty recital; Hebrew concert

The D’Angelo Department of Music will present two major performances in April.

At 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 14, the highlight of the annual faculty recital series, the “collage” recital featuring several members of the faculty of the D’Angelo Music Department will be held in Walker Recital Hall. That event is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature the following faculty: Erik Mann (guitar), Geoffrey Wands (clarinet), Nathan Hess (piano), Ronald Stitt (trombone), Scott Meier (alto saxophone) and Faith Lifshen and Janet Bischoff (pianos).

Then on Sunday, April 17, the Mercyhurst Concert Choir and the Mercyhurst Carpe Diem Chorale, under the direction of Rebecca Ryan, will present a concert at the Temple Anshe Hesed, 930 Liberty St., featuring the music of Renaissance composer Salamone Rossi. Sacred selections from the “Songs of Solomon” will be sung in Hebrew while the secular songs will be sung in Italian.

Members of the Gannon University Flute Choir, directed by Holly Stackhouse-Sydow, will perform instrumental works by Rossi and accompany the choir.

Dr. Dennis Vidmar will give a pre-concert lecture on the life and music of Rossi at 1 p.m. followed by the concert at 2:30.
