SRU Flute Choir offers fall concert

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - The Slippery Rock University Flute Choir and the Chamber Flutes will present their fall concert at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 19, in Swope Music Hall

The concert, directed by Stacey Steele, assistant professor of music, will include an arrangement of the "Overture" from the Giussepe Verdi's opera "Nabucco."

Also planned are pop favorites "Stereo Hearts" and "Some Nights."

"The SRU Flute Choir will also offer such diverse selections as 'Three Korean Folk Songs' and 'Fantasia on Red River Valley,' arranged by Kelly Via," Steele said.

Two guest conductors will also be featured. Adam Deutsch, a music education major from Weedville, will direct "Awakening," a work that includes percussion, and Stacy Schermann, an information technology technician in SRU's Technology Support Services, will guest conduct for "Innes Glas Mor, a setting of Celtic melodies written by Lisa LeMay.

Ian Clarke's new composition "Zig Zag Zoo!" will be performed.

"This delightful piece was perhaps intended for a young audience, but it demands technical prowess from the choir and it includes some audience participation for those who care to tap into their inner child," Steele said.

Japanese composer Ryohei Hirose's 1979 "Blue Train," which continues to set a standard for contemporary music, will be presented.

Suggested donations are $5 for adults and $3 for students.
