Mosteller sets fall faculty recital

PLAINVIEW – Wayland Baptist University Associate Professor of Music Dr. Sandra Mosteller will present “An Evening of Song and D*nce” at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 16, in Harral Memorial Auditorium.

The program will include both instrumental and vocal music, as well as dance, an activity stereotypically frowned upon in traditional Baptist circles. Mosteller, however, will combine her classical clarinet with the added dimensions of piano, voice and dance. Dr. Gary Belshaw, associate professor of piano pedagogy, will accompany Mosteller on piano with Kimberly Brown, assistant professor of vocal studies, performing during “To Be Sung Upon the Water,” a composition by Dominick Argento. Natalie Collins will dance during Mosteller’s rendition of “Dance (she waits …)” by James Laughlin.

Mosteller said she designed the program selfishly, “to combine my love of the voice and of creative movement.” She will perform on three instruments, the E-flat soprano, B-flat soprano and B-flat bass clarinets. The program will include pieces by 20th Century composers by Robert Sierra, Witold Lutoslawski, Maurice Ravel and William Bolcom.

Admission to the recital is free and open to the public.
