SHSU Update for Week of November 19
"Traditionally, the designation 'Department of Music' is used to indicate small-sized units that offer only undergraduate programs, have small faculty/staff numbers, and limited library holdings," said Robert Walzel, who chairs the school. "The term 'School of Music' is typically used to denote programs that offer undergraduate and graduate programs, have significant library holdings, contribute in a significant manner to the culture of the area, and are leading institutions in the region.
"Given these criteria, the term 'school' more closely describes the music unit at Sam Houston State and best represents its size and scope to the outside world."
The performance commemorates the 250th anniversary year of the death of Bach. It is scheduled for 3 p.m. in the Recital Hall.
Concertos to be performed include Bach's No. 1 in A Minor, No. 2 in E Major, and Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor.
Chamber Orchestra personnel include Veronica Wilson (concert mistress), Josh Smith, Heather Nielson, Carlos Lara, Mike Ross, Dustin Whittlesey, Kristi Kay, Dawn Heussner, Hillary Markuson, Daren Denniston, Long Le, Phillip Milbrandt, Gina Villanueva, Jessica Wright and Bruce Moats III.
Those who attend are encouraged to bring nonperishable canned food items to benefit the Good Shepherd Mission, as well as wrapped toys for the SAAFE House.
The SHSU Program Council requests that the wrapped toys be marked by gender and age group. Hot chocolate, cookies and wassail will be served.
The program includes a variety of folk music from many cultures, performed by a talented group of acoustic musicians.
The event is sponsored by Sam Houston's Friends of Traditional Music. Admission is free.
