Published on: November 04, 2011
The Lone Star College-Montgomery String Ensemble and Symphonic Band will perform a free concert entitled Instrumental Soundings: Past and Present on Wednesday, November 16, at 7:30 p.m., in the Recital Hall, located in the college’s Music Hall (Building H).
The concert is a collection of traditional and contemporary repertoire featuring composers such as Arcangelo Correlli, Luigi Boccherini, and David Gillingham. The UnPlugged Saxophone Quartet from Sam Houston State University will join the performance and provide a short preview of the recital scheduled at the college on Friday, January 27, 2012.
Dr. Lisa Burrell, adjunct faculty member at LSC-Montgomery and director of the string ensemble, along with Kris Chapman, associate professor and director of instrumental music at LSC-Montgomery, will lead the performance.
“Many people only know the saxophone sound from jazz music,” said Chapman. “I encourage everyone to come and hear the amazing musical sounds this ensemble can create with this very unique instrument. It will be quite a treat.”
