Saturday, April 20, USM School of Music Students Perform in the Chamber Music Awards Concert

Corthell Hall, USM Gorham Campus

Following the University Chorale concert earlier this same evening, treat yourself to dinner at a local eatery, or at the Brooks Student Center right on campus, and then come back to Corthell Concert Hall by 8 p.m. for the Chamber Music Awards Concert.

In this concert that happens only every other year, student ensembles are recommended by their faculty advisor, and then chosen by audition for this public performance.

The program will begin with Will Bristol and Mark Rossnagel on pianos performing a Schubert Fantasy for four hands. The Clarinet Choir includes Dalton Ringey, Beth Spelter, Allie Macisso, Ben Fox, Kate Bernier and Libby Perry Bowder, and will perform three Renaissance transcriptions. Two works by Handel will be performed by James Brown, counter-tenor, Jeremy Binette, trumpet, and Jeffrey Mosher, piano. The final performers on the program will be a quartet by Ravel performed by Aaron Pettengill and Sam Schuth, violins, Roy MacNeil, viola, and Shannon Allen, cello.
