BassoonistOn Saturday, May 24th, 2008, the Fine Arts Department will present a recital of classical music written for bassoon and piano. The bassoon is most familiar by its role as the grandfather in Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" and the opening solo in Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring."

The performers include Fine Arts librarian, Michael Dalby and friend, PJ Woolston, who performed together in various orchestras in college. Anne Dalby will accompany them on the piano. The recital will feature works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Lars-Erik Larsson, and Johann Baptist Vanhal. Please join us on the 3rd floor of Main Library on Saturday, May 24th, 2008 at 4pm for "An Afternoon of Bassoon"!

On April 5th, 2008, the Fine Arts Department presented a program of classical guitar by performers Jonathan Godfrey and Benjamin Kunkel, both Master of Music candidates at the Cleveland Institute of Music. The music performed featured solo guitar works by Scarlatti, Sor, Villa-Lobos, Torroba, Mangoré, and Brindle. If you happened to miss this great performance, the Fine Arts Department did record the event. Here are two MP3 files you can listen to and download:
