FLUTE FIREWORKS SURE TO ENTERTAIN
LOGAN — Utah State University’s Department of Music presents Flute Fireworks, the final flute concert of the academic year, Tuesday, April 2, at 6:30 p.m. in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall, located in the Chase Fine Arts Center.
“This is a wonderful program for people who love music of all kinds,” said Sally Humphreys, a temporary flute instructor in the Caine College of the Arts. “The students are playing such a hodge-podge of styles, from opera to musicals to more conventional ‘classical music’ selections, that there is sure to be something for everyone.”
The performance will feature the USU Flute Choir, harpist Julie Ann Hewkin and clarinetist Sherstin Hicken.
Hewkin and flute student Jessica Coppieters will perform “Piece en forme de Habanera,” and Hicken and flutist Diane Curtis will perform a piece by Gary Schocker.
Other works to be performed are the “Royal Fireworks Overture” by Handel, selections from the opera “Carmen” by Georges Bizet, a Russian folk song entitled “Here is a Fish Fat and Fine” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” among others.
“The students are natural performers and really enjoy sharing their music with others,” said Humphreys. “They have fun playing together and that comes across in their performance.”
Flute Fireworks is on Tuesday, April 2, at 6:30 p.m. in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall Balcony. The concert is free and open to the public, and for more information visit the Caine College of the Arts Box Office in 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center, call 435-797-8022 or see the college’s Production Services website (arts.usu.edu).
