Upcoming Music and Theatre Events in November

PLATTSBURGH, NY __ The Music and Theatre departments at the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh have a full lineup of entertainment scheduled for November. For more information on any of these events, contact the College at 518-564-2180.

Saturday, Oct. 29 at 8 p.m., in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall. Faculty concert featuring Dr. Karen Becker.

The newest member of the SUNY Plattsburgh music faculty, pianist Dr. Karen Becker, will be joined by Jo Ellen Miano, soprano and associate professor of music; Robin Cameron-Phillips, flute and adjunct lecturer of music; and Janice Kyle, oboe, in the inaugural concert of the Karen Becker and Friends Series.

Becker will perform Piano Sonata #1 by Alberto Ginastera and will collaborate with Miano to perform songs by Brahms, Strauss, Gershwin and Sondheim. In addition, Becker and Cameron-Phillips will perform Sonata "Undine" Opus 167 for Flute and Piano by Carl Reinecke.

The concert is free and open to the public.

Karen Becker and Friends Series will provide opportunities for students, faculty, staff and the general public to enjoy live performances of great music while enhancing the cultural environment of the North County community.

Friday and Saturday, Nov. 4 and 5, at 8 p.m. in the Studio Theatre, Myers Fine Arts Building. The Smell of the Kill by Michele Lowe.

The College Theatre Association will present The Smell of the Kill , directed by SUNY Plattsburgh student Bruce Townsend. Tickets are $2 and available at the door on the nights of the performance.

The play is a hilariously twisted and offbeat comedy. Three couples have been enjoying a monthly dinner party for years. After dinner, the husbands hold putting competitions in the dining room while the wives gossip in the kitchen. But on this particular night, the party takes an unexpected turn, leaving the ladies in a precarious situation.

The men take a tour of a new walk-in meat freezer in the basement and promptly get stuck inside. Join the three women as they work through the ultimate question - the pros and cons of "what do we do now?"

The production is sponsored by the Student Association through the Campus Arts Council.

Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall. Fall Choral Concert.

The Music Department presents the Fall Choral Concert featuring performances by three choral ensembles. The College Chorale, Cardinal Singers and Minor Adjustments will perform a wide spectrum of choral works, including a cappella arrangements of "Danny Boy" and "In My Life," and a lively arrangement of "Puttin' on the Ritz."

The performance is free and open to the public.

Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 9 - 12, at 8 p.m. in the Hartman Theatre, Myers Fine Arts Building. The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh.

The Theatre Department presents The Cripple of Inishmaan, directed by John Shout, professor of theatre and English. The play is set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934. The story is a strange comic tale in the great tradition of Irish storytelling.

Advance tickets may be purchased at the Angell College Center Information Desk until 10 p.m. each night. Tickets will also be available on the night of the shows at the Hartman Theatre Box Office. Tickets are $10 for general admission; $8 for alumni, faculty, staff, non-SUNY Plattsburgh students and seniors; and $2 for SUNY Plattsburgh students. (Play contains strong language - parental guidance is strongly encouraged.)

Friday, Nov. 11 at 8 p.m., in the E. Glenn Giltz Auditorium, Hawkins Hall. Symphonic Band Concert.

The Music Department presents the Symphonic Band Concert under the direction of Daniel Gordon, assistant professor of music. The concert will feature an all-Finnish program, including the world premier of "Winter Reflection" by Jukka Viitasaari, which is dedicated to the SUNY Plattsburgh Symphonic Band. The program is the result of Gordon's recent sabbatical where he spent a year in Finland studying various aspects of Finnish music.
The concert is free and open to the public.
