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!
