BM Degree Recital

This Friday, November 7th, senior Chelsea Nelson will be presenting her Bachelor of Music Degree Recital in Hatch Hall at 7:00pm. Her recital celebrates Scandinavian culture in music by featuring works from composers such as: Kvandal, Sibelius, Nielsen, Atterberg and Madsen.  Influences from folk tunes, the prominence of the Romantic style and the depiction of the stark and beautiful Scandinavian landscape of these compositions truly highlight the horn’s dynamic range of color and emotion as well as its bold character. Additionally, this program will feature several little known works of the horn repertoire that will surely entice many to add these pieces to their standard stock!

Erin Futterer will be presenting a Lecture Recital in completion of her doctoral studies, which will focus on works for solo horn that were dedicated to or commissioned by Frøydis Ree Wekre, internationally renowned horn player, teacher, and clinician.  Through the personal stories and anecdotes of Frøydis and the composers , supported by historical records andErin’s own investigation and analysis of the works, she hope to bring to life this largely unknown, but wonderful repertoire, as well as the woman who made it possible. The recital will take place on Monday, March 31st at 1:00pm in Hatch Recital Hall at the Eastman School of Music. Hope to see you there!
