KENNESAW, Ga. (August 24, 2012) — The Kennesaw State University Scholarship Series presents the KSU Faculty Showcase, featuring more than 20 faculty performers together in concert. The performance will take place on Thursday, Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. in Morgan Hall in the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center.
This will be the largest group of faculty performers ever presented together in concert at KSU. “The program will include works of Schubert, Mozart and Bernstein, as well as jazz selections and a number of unusual and exciting pieces,” says John Warren, assistant professor of clarinet and director of the performance. “This will be a great opportunity to listen to a variety of chamber music in the wonderful acoustic of the newly named Morgan Hall.”
The KSU School of Music is pleased to introduce several new faculty members on this program. Jason Eklund joins the faculty as Artist-in-Residence in Horn and both Karin Bliznik and Doug Lindsey, new trumpet faculty members, will perform for the first time at KSU. Joseph McFadden joins the string bass faculty on this program as well.
“Those in attendance will be impressed by the talent of those teaching at KSU,” says Harry Price, director of the School of Music. “These performances will allow audiences to see an incredible range of quality. This is the best opportunity to be inspired to attend other events, while helping fund scholarships for music students.”
The Scholarship Series supports the School of Music scholarships by showcasing a combination of student and faculty performers in a variety of contexts and styles. Tickets for each performance are $15. Discounts are available for KSU personnel, seniors, military and groups. Those buying tickets for the entire Scholarship Series will receive a 25% discount.
