The concert will begin with the premiere of “Two Songs on Poems of Wendell Berry,” by Tennessee composer, Kenton Coe, and performed by Dr. Sharon Mabry, professor of music and mezzo-soprano; Dr. Stephen Clark, professor of music and clarinet; and Patsy Wade, pianist.

Soprano Barbara Hudson, accompanied by Liz Wolynec on piano and guest artist Angela Collier on flute, will perform “American Art Songs for the Sacred Service.”

Other works will include pieces by Alberto Ginastera played by Dr. Stanley Yates on guitar, as well as a poignant work for tenor and piano, “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night,” performed by Dr. Jeffrey Wood and guest artist, Gregory Rike.

Mabry and Wade also will perform George Rochberg's “Eleven Songs for Mezzo-soprano and Piano,” which they recorded on the Owl label.

The concert will conclude with “Two Movements for Violin and Piano,” performed by Wood on piano and guest violinist, Elizabeth Small. Composed by Gonzalo L. Gonzales, this work is the winning composition for APSU's 2005 Young Composers Competition. Gonzales will be present for its debut at the concert.

The concert is free and open to the public.
