Emory & Henry College Presents: Conor Angell, Baritone

Sep 07th, 2013   7:30 pm 10:00 pm
@ Memory Chapel, Campus 30461 Garnand Dr, Emory, VA 24327

The Emory & Henry College Arts Series presents baritone Conor Angell singing Franz Schubert’s final musical achievement, the 14 song composition Schwanengesang, during a Sept. 7 concert at the College.

Sharon Johnson, pianist, will collaborate with him at the piano. Memorial Chapel is the site for the recital, which begins at 7:30 p.m.

Translated as “Swan Song,” the featured work suggests the myth that swans sing their only song just before dying, and its sound is heartbreakingly beautiful. In addition Angell and Johnson perform a lighthearted set of cabaret songs in English, featuring colorful characters and witty lyrics, by the contemporary American composer William Bolcom.

Angell holds a doctorate in voice from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and teaches voice and directs the lyric theatre at Houghton College. Johnson holds a doctorate of musical arts from the University of Minnesota in collaborative piano.

The event is free of charge to Emory & Henry College students, faculty and staff, but a reservation is required to guarantee a seat. The adult public is admitted for $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Individuals 55 and over, or students from other institutions, are admitted for $8.

For reservations contact the Office of the Arts Coordinator, 276-944-6846 during the hours of Noon-5 p.m. daily, except Saturday and Sunday.
