Reminder: Rector and Hong piano duo tonight at Weidner
The Music program continues its “6:30 Thursdays – music from every angle” series with a two-piano duo/husband-and-wife team, Sylvia Hong and Michael Rector, presenting “The Music Trance” at 6:30 p.m. today (Thursday, Oct. 15) in Fort Howard Hall of the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts. Hong is artist-in-residence at Belhaven University; Rector is an assistant professor of Music at UW-Green Bay. In a program that illuminates the power of harmony and repetition to create intense musical effects, Hong and Rector will perform pieces by a stylistically diverse group of composers. Expression ranges from romantic yearning in Franz Schubert’s “Fantasy,” to the architectonic force of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “Symphonic Dances” and the developing ecstasy of John Adams’ “Hallelujah Junction.” Admission is free; donations are welcome.
