Tabor faculty to headline Sunday musical program

Tabor College music faculty and guest artists will perform ?Carnival of the Animals,? 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, in the Tabor College Chapel-Auditorium.

The first half of the program will be Felix Mendelssohn?s ?Piano Trio in C Minor,? which is ?exquisitely written and challenging technically for all players,? according to Sheila Litke, professor of piano and piano pedagogy.

Litke said the ?Carnival of the Animals? by Camille Saint-Sa?ns uses ?the various instruments to imitate the different animals.?

Chris Dick of the English faculty will narrate between the movements.

?It should be a fun listening event for all,? Litke said.

In addition to Dick, performers include: Adrienne Dougherty and Ann Dunn, violin; Emily Baldridge, viola; Susan Mayo, cello; Dennis Danders, double bass; Joyann Brake, flute; Rachelle Goter, clarinet; Andrew Slater, percussion; Litke and Jennifer Epp, piano.

?I?m always honored to be able to play with such fine players,? Litke said. ?Many of the performers have been part of our larger orchestral performances. All are very talented. It should be a great afternoon of fine music.?

The concert also will ?showcase our newly acquired 9-foot Yamaha CFIII piano, a gift funded primarily by the Class of 1962,? Litke said.

The program is free and open to public.
