FACULTY VOICE RECITAL AT CONCORDIA
Concordia College music instructor Paul Hindemith, baritone, and Andrew Fleser, piano, of McNally Smith College of Music, will present a faculty recital at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, in Christiansen Recital Hall, Hvidsten Hall of Music.
The first half of the program features the Song Cycle of Robert Schumann and arias by J.S. Bach for voice and trumpet, featuring Concordia College faculty Peter Knudsvig, trumpet, and Robert Chabora, piano. The second half of the program includes settings of poetry by E.A. Robinson and Elinor Wylie by 20th-century American composer John Duke and French composer George Auric’s “Eight poems of Jean Cocteau.”
Hindemith has stage credits to his name in opera, operetta and musical theatre. He appears regularly with the Fargo-Moorhead Opera, and has also sung with the San Diego Opera, Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre, and the Minnesota Orchestra. Performing new music is an integral part of his work, and in the summer of 2006, he premiered the winning song cycle of the NATS Art Song Competition, David Cutler's “Evenly Spaced Waves of Irony.” Paul holds a doctorate from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Music degree in Voice/Opera Performance from the University of Maryland – College Park.
The recital is free and open to the public. It will also be streamed live on the Concordia College Music Department website.
