Austin Peay's department of music presents the final performance of the 2003-04 Dimensions New Music Series.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m., Monday, April 12, in APSU's music/mass communication building concert hall.

Featuring the work of Dr. Judith Shatin, guest composer, the concert will include faculty, student and guest artist performances of “Widdershins,” “Gabriel's Wing” and “Fantasia Sobre El Flamenco.” The program also consists of “Flourishes With Chorale” and “Night” composed by APSU Professors of Music Francis Massinon and Dr. Jeffrey Wood, respectively.

The concert will include performances by APSU faculty members Dr. Patricia Halbeck, piano; Richard Steffen, trumpet; Francis Massinon, horn; Dr. Jeffrey Wood, piano; Dr. Lisa Vanarsdel, flute; and Dr. Bernard Flythe, tuba.

APSU student performers include Patrick Reynolds, trombone; Marcia Renken, trumpet; and Joel McGrath, bass trombone.

Lisa Conklin-Bishop, mezzo-soprano; Keith Ellis, trumpet; and Sam Barlow, trombone, will perform as guest artists.

Ranging from chamber and orchestral to choral and acoustic, Shatin's internationally performed music has been hailed as “marvelously inventive” by the Washington Post and “exuberant and captivating” by the San Francisco Chronicle.

A graduate of The Juilliard School and Princeton University, Shatin serves as the University of Virginia's William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Music and director of the Virginia Center for Computer Music.

The concert is free and open to the public.
