FLUTISTS TO SURROUND AUDIENCE FOR OPENING OF SRU FLUTE CHOIR, CHAMBER FLUTES CONCERT

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – The audience will literally be surrounded by flutists offering an antiphonal piece by 16th-century composer Giovanni Gabrieli when the Slippery Rock University Flute Choir and Chamber Flutes open their fall concert at 8 p.m. Nov. 21 in Swope Recital Hall. A selection using various-size bottles will also be included.

          Other University Flute Choir pieces are an arrangement of "Kumbaya," a contemporary composition by British composer Keith Amos titled "Miss Livvy, An Edwardian Saga" and Mozart's "Magic Flute." A performance of Wil Offermans "Jungle Dance" written for flute, samba whistle and various-size bottles is planned.

          The Chamber Flutes will perform contemporary American composer Gary Schocker's "Nymphs," a piece for expanded flute quartet titled "Mountain Songs” by Jennifer Higdon, and "Divertimento Jazz" composed by Raymond Guiot. Closing the free concert will be "Silver Winds in the Night," an arrangement of “Silent Night” by Mannheim Steamroller composer Jackson Berkey.

          The free concert is under the direction of Stacey Steele, assistant professor of music at SRU.
