CEDARVILLE — The Cedarville University Orchestra will perform several engaging pieces during its annual fall concert 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, 2016.
The concert will showcase three music faculty members with a world premier piece and a farewell performance.
The concert will feature the world premiere of “Clarinet Concerto,” composed by Steve Winteregg, D.M.A., professor of music. The premiere will feature soloist Bruce Curlette, D.M.A., senior professor of music and director of the orchestra’s clarinet ensemble.
“I often compose solo pieces that combine the concerto with program music,” Winteregg said. “In this case, I have combined a concerto for clarinet and orchestra with a musical picture of significant places in Dayton’s history.”
As a “farewell” appearance with the orchestra, Chuck Clevenger, D.M.A., senior professor of music, will perform Mozart’s “Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor.” Clevenger has served on the faculty at Cedarville for 34 years and will retire from full-time teaching at the end of the 2016-17 academic year.
The orchestra, directed by Carlos Elias, M.M., professor of music, will also perform Sibelius’ “Finlandia” and the Overture from Verdi’s “La Forza del Destino.”
The performance, which will be held in the Dixon Ministry Center, is free and open to the public.
