GUEST TUBA ARTIST MAKES SEVENTH VISIT TO CONCORDIA
The Concordia College Music Department presents the seventh annual visit by guest tuba artist Dean A. Somerville in a recital at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, in Christiansen Recital Hall. Somerville will be accompanied by Dr. Sarah Kahl, a former member of Concordia’s piano faculty; Dr. Nathaniel Dickey on euphonium and tuba; and Jane Linde Capistran on violin.
Former tubist and soloist with the U.S. Army Band, Somerville is also a composer and arranger of music for tuba and other instruments. A noted pedagogue, Somerville studied with legendary tuba teachers Arnold Jacobs and Donald Butterfield.
Somerville will perform music by Brahms, Andrea Catozzi, Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz, and several of his own compositions. The concert is free and open to the public.
