WCU presents faculty brass recital

Written by 

Western Carolina University’s School of Music will present a free faculty brass recital at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 25 in the recital hall of Coulter Building.

The event, part of the Catamount Concert Series, will feature solo performances by Daniel Cherry (euphonium), Travis Bennett (horn), Michael Schallock (tuba) and Bradley Ulrich and Larry Black (trumpet). Cherry will be featured in Friedebald Grafe’s “Grand Concerto,” a Romantic-style piece originally written for trombone but suited for the tone quality, technical abilities and character of the euphonium.

Bennett will solo in Emmanuel Chabrier’s “Larghetto,” which was first performed in 1878 and originally written for horn and orchestra. Cast as the French horn equivalent of an operatic aria, “Larghetto” was discovered among the self-taught composer’s effects after his death. Schallock will be featured in Robert Jager’s “Concerto for Bass Tuba,” Ulrich in Paul Hindemith’s “Sonate” and Black in Johann Fasch’s “Concerto in D.” Bradley Martin, associate professor, will accompany the musicians on piano.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
