PSU Solo & Chamber Music Series to Debut Sept. 9 – Newstalk KZRG

The Solo & Chamber Music Series returns to the Pittsburg State University campus this fall for a full season of live concerts.

Tickets are on sale now for the season which will span six Friday nights during the school year at McCray Hall.

The season will open on September 9 with an interesting and creative program by the string trio Black Oak Ensemble, which performs regularly around the world.

On October 14, the university’s Fisk Opus 106 organ will be brilliantly presented by organist Joseph Adam, Music Director of St. James Cathedral, Seattle, who performs regularly with the Seattle Symphony.

The fall season will end on November 11 with an innovative percussion performance by the duo Arx, who have created performances on three continents and worked to expand the repertoire of percussion chamber music.

On January 20, the university will welcome Italian trombonist Peter Steiner, an extraordinary artist who has been hailed as “a new trombone star within his generation”.

On February 17, the series will feature award-winning string quartet Calidore, hailed by The New York Times for their “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct.”

The season will conclude on March 31 with a highly anticipated program of music by female composers, titled Web of Lace, featuring the Tapestry Ensemble of Boston.

Each concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. For a more detailed description of each concert, visit www.pittstate.edu/music/series of solo and chamber music.html
