Music Faculty Recital

Marcelo Lian, Debra DeFrain, Tom Ediger, Ken Meints, and Jake Bartlett

Tuesday evening, October 9,  at 7:30 in the Jindra Fine Arts Recital Hall, the Peru State College Music Faculty entertained an appreciative audience with a variety of music and instruments, from piano to voice.

Jacob Bartlee, bass-baritone, accompanied by Tom Ediger, piano, let off the recital with J. S. Bach's Qui Fecit Mihi Magna, part of which you can enjoy, along with selections from the other performances, on the video I posted.

Afterwards, Drbra DeFrain joined Tom Ediger at the piano and performed The Scarlet Cape, followed by the return of Jacob Bartlett to sing Robert Schumann's Veir Husarenlieder, op. 117.

The following translation give you an idea of the tenor of what Bartlett sang:

From this and that chateau
I sampled the wine,
While your blood 
Went dry.

Finally broke out
The hot fight,
My sword, and now
Your time has come.

At the piano, Marcelo Lian then entertained the crowd with Fredric Chopin's Ballade No.4 in F Minor, Op. 52. 

And Ken Meints, trombone, and Tom Ediger, piano, concluded the evening with Donald White's Sonata for Trombone and Piano.

In addition to the video, I posted some photographs from the recital.
