performance in the annual Close-Up Concert Series, Paris Between the Wars,
featuring music from Paris in the 1920s on Sunday, March 24 at 3 p.m. in Mary
Lindsay Welch Honors Hall. Tickets are $10 at the door.
The 1920s in Paris was a cultural and
artistic hub with the French composers comprising the “Les Six,” the Ballets
Rousses, Stravinsky, Josephine Baker, Dada and surrealism. The program will
include Milhaud’s samba-inspired The Ox
on the Roof, Poulenc’s Trio for Oboe,
Bassoon and Piano, the flute sonata of Dutilleux
and Stravinsky’s Octet.
In conjunction with the Williamsport
Symphony Orchestra, the performance will be conducted by Dr. William
Ciabattari, assistant professor of music, and performers will include Reuben Councill, flutist; Susan Laib, oboist; Stephen
Olson, bassoonist; and pianists Yvonne Mitchell-Sarch and Gary Boerckel.
Close-Up Concert series presents great music for small ensembles performed as
it was meant to be – in intimate and informal settings. All concerts are held
on Sundays at 3 p.m.
