This week all eyes are on our Momentum Dance Concert
, starting Thursday evening, but it’s time to look ahead to next week’s Samford arts offerings!
Music professor Brian Villiunas, clarinet, will open the Samford arts week with a free public recital Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Brock Recital Hall.
We will present our annual Samford Opera Scenes event Friday and Saturday April 12-13. Music professor Kristin Kenning directs this year’s production. “Besides doing a wide range of scenes, from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro to Kurt Weill's Street Scene , we're also doing the premiere staging of a scene from Evan Mack's new opera The Secret of Luca,” says Kenning. “This is actually a big deal as both he and the librettist, Joshua McGuire, will be in residence with our students previous to the performances - coaching them musically and dramatically.”
Samford Opera Scenes is presented free of charge at 7:30 p.m. in Bolding Studio both nights. The scene casts will be different each night, so if you can’t decide which night to attend, just attend both!
