SUNY Plattsburgh Presents Chamber Ensembles Concert

PLATTSBURGH, NY (November 16, 2007) - SUNY Plattsburgh's music department presents the Chamber Ensembles Concert on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium in Hawkins Hall.

This evening of music will feature works performed by the college's Saxophone Ensemble, Clarinet Choir, Flute Ensemble and Brass Ensemble, under the direction of Associate Professor of Music Daniel Gordon and Adjunct Lecturers Janine Scherline, Robin Cameron-Phillips and Herm Matlock.

Works will include arrangements from Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro," Irving Berlin's "Putting on the Ritz," Handel's "Water Music," and a work in two movements, a serene "Pastorale" and a vivace "Ronde" from the original flute quartet by Eugene Bozza called "Jour D'ete a La Montagne" or "A Summer Day in the Mountains."

In addition, the concert will feature three original works and one transcription for saxophone ensemble. The first is the sprightly "Intrada" by Syracuse University Saxophone Professor Ronald Cavavan, which was written for that school's performance at the 1997 New York State School of Music Association's Conference. The second two are works by Carl Anton Wirth, a New York State composer who wrote several works for saxophone. The group will play his classics, "Praeludium," and "Portals." The transcription is a short and mellifluous hymn from "A Rustic Wedding" by Swedish Composer Franz Berwald.

Admission is free. For more information please call 518-564-2180.
