Sunday: Some Classical Choices

Those who read this blog or the print Metro Pulse will know that I have already mentioned the UT Faculty Chamber Series concert on Sunday afternoon. For information on that, check out this week's print Metro Pulse for a preview. (Online here) The concert is 3 pm at Church Street United Methodist on Henley Street. And, it's free as usual.

There are two other events known to me occurring on Sunday afternoon as well. 

Friends of Music and the Arts (FOMA), an organization of Episcopal Church of the Ascension, is offering at 5 pm "Music for Choir with Instruments." The announced program consists of Chichester Psalms by Leonard Bernstein and the Dorchester Canticles by Tarik O'Regan. The Choirs of Ascension, conducted by James Garvey, will be joined by Cindy Hicks, harp, F. Michael Combs, percussion, and John Brock, organ. To my knowledge, the concert is free.

At 6 pm, the UT School of Music offers another in its series of guest artist concerts-Trio Sonora. Trio Sonora are University of Arizona graduate bassoonists performing an eclectic mix of classical and pop music; works by Lowell Shaw, Julius Weissenborn, Adolf Bergt, Stefan de Haan, plus world premier of Desert Miniatures:Insects by Robert McClure. That's this Sunday, March 10, at 6:00 p.m. in Performance Hall 32 of the Alumni Memorial Bldg. on the UT campus. Free.

Note: The Trio Sonora bassoonists are Robert Bedont, Martin Van Klompenberg and Travis Jones. Jones, who is pursuing a Masters at Arizona, received his undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee, winning UT's Concerto Competition in 2011. While an undergraduate, he performed as a member of the UT Symphony and Opera Orchestras and various chamber music ensembles.
