Stephenson ‘Costs of War’ recital

Jen Stephenson, assistant professor of music at Tabor College, will present “The Costs of War: A Recital,” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18, in the Richert Auditorium within the Shari Flaming Center for the Arts.

Stephenson will be singing music by the composers Menotti, Debussy, Laitman, Poulenc, Duparc, Barber and de Falla. J. Bradley Baker, assistant professor of music at Tabor, will accompany her on the piano. Performing as special guest is Rachelle Goter, clarinetist with the Wichita Symphony.

“I thought the recital about the costs of war would be interesting,” Stephenson said. “All of the music has texts about the effects of war on people: soldiers, children, mothers, widows, immigrants, POWs. I like the idea of focusing on the cost of war on all people, not just soldiers, because it makes the need for peace a tangible reality for all people.”

The recital is free and open to the public.
