Music faculty members take to the stage in Pealer Recital Hall at Frostburg State University at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 15, to highlight their diverse talents. Tickets will be available at the door and are $5 for the general public and $3 for children under 16.
The Gala, presented every two years, will feature works that are rarely performed: compositions for eight pianos, and a good-natured musical spoof featuring faculty “playing” rubber hoses and tubes filled with water. Instrumentalists and singers will present compositions in both jazz and classical genres.
Participants in the recital include: Ellen Grolman, Joan Dixon, Fanny Witmer, Betty Jane Phillips, Judith Wood, Chris McCabe, Jane Kobert and Mark Steiner, piano; Brian Plitnik, trombone; Mark Gallagher, clarinet; Steve McKnight, trumpet; Marissa Ulmer, French horn; Kristin Bacchiocchi-Stewart, flute; Ron Horner, marimba; and Tim Powell, saxophone. Jonathan Hodel and Karen Soderberg will sing.
All proceeds go toward Music Scholarship funds. Contact Ellen Grolman for more information at (301) 687-4117.
