Sept. 11 concert to feature violinist, cellist and Tabor pianist

Tabor College?s music tradition continues Sept. 11 with the Tabor College Faculty Chamber Recital at the Parkview Menno?nite Brethren Church, 610 S. Main St., in Hillsboro.

The concert, featuring violinist Adrienne Dougherty, cellist Susan Mayo, and Tabor College concert pianist Sheila Litke, will begin at 4 p.m. The doors will open at 3:15 p.m.

Admission is free and open to the public.

?I enjoy doing the chamber music,? said Litke, associate professor of piano and piano pedagogy. ?Each plays as a soloist, but must blend to make the sound of an ensemble. It?s a fun challenge in that regard.

?I couldn?t ask for any better musicians to play with,? she added. ?Technically, they are some of the finest players, and, as a pianist, they are very fun to play with.?

The chamber trio, which has enjoyed many performances in the past several years, will present three pieces: ?Trio in C Major? by Franz Joseph Haydn, ?Verano Prote?o??a 20th-century tango featuring a fusion of jazz and classical elements?by ?stor Piazzolla and ?Trio in D Minor? by Felix Mendelssohn.

Dougherty taught instrumental music in the Wichita Public Schools for 32 years before retiring. She has been a member of the Wichita Symphony Orchestra and concertmaster for Music Theatre of Wichita for 40 years and concertmaster for the Newton Mid-Kansas Orchestra for 15 years.

Dougherty completed her master?s degree in school counseling in 2006 at Wichita State University.

Mayo teaches at Friends University and Emporia State University, as well as gives private instruction. She plays in the Wichita Symphony Orchestra.
