Hartwick Music Department Plans Events

October 11, 2011

The Hartwick College Department of Music has announced two upcoming events. Both are free, and the public is invited to attend.

On Friday, October 14, Hartwick College Department of Music will present an evening of Robert Schumann's song cycle Die Dichterliebe (The Poet's Love), op. 48.  Written in 1840, the work includes 16 songs set to the poetry of Heinrich Heine and is considered Schumann's best song cycle.  The recital will feature Christopher Pfund, tenor, who has performed nationally and internationally, and who is a resident artist in voice in the Department of Music at Hartwick. He will be accompanied by Heather Forsha, resident artist in piano. The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Anderson Theatre on the Hartwick campus.

On Saturday, October 15, Hartwick College Department of Music will host the Excelsior Cornet Band, a Civil War re-enactment band of 12 musicians.  Beginning at 2 p.m., the group will present a master class on Civil War brass instruments. That evening at 7:30, they will give a concert of Civil War-era music. The Cornet Band is New York's only authentic Civil War band. The master class will take place in Anderson Room 201 and the concert in Anderson Theatre. 

For more information on either event, call Lynda Clark at 431-4800.
