The UTC Music Department is pleased to present the UTC Flute Ensemble and Southern Adventist University Trombone Choir, directed by Heather Small and Robert Pendergast, respectively.
The performance will take place at UTC’s Patton Chapel at 648 Oak St., Chattanooga; on November 15, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. Included in this recital is an arrangement of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”, which has to this day been enduringly popular, frequently recorded and performed. It is a seven-movement suite in which each movement represents a planet of the solar system, as well as its corresponding astrological character. Also being performed are two movements of a new flute quartet by Eric Ewazan, titled “Harmony in Blue and Gold”, inspired by James McNeill Whistler’s Peacock Room. The piece utilizes impressionistic moods and artistic textures to portray the theme of peacocks and the blue and gold porcelain displayed there. Music also featured in this concert includes “Masques” by Anne McGinty and compositions by Susato, Philip Bliss, Gliere and the Beatles. The performance is presented free of charge and open to the general public. Additional information may be found at http://www.utc.edu/Academic/Music/Events.php
