On Tuesday, September 2 at 7:30 p.m. flutist Andra Bohnet will present her Faculty Recital at the University of South Alabama Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall. Bohnet will be joined by new Assistant Professor pianist Jasmin Arakawa, making her Musical Arts Series debut, and the members of the Silverwood Quartet -- Tom Morley, violin, Jonathan Clark, viola and guitar and Barbara Gabriel, cello.
All of the works on the program for the evening have a whimsical connection to the celestial! The centerpiece of the concert is a blockbuster for flute and piano entitled “Hatching Aliens” by Ian Clarke. The work is highly cinematic and very exciting with many special effects for both the flutist and pianist -- think Spielberg! Other highlights for the evening include Gary Schocker’s “Sonata for a Lost Planet” for alto flute and piano and the Silverwood Quartet’s epic arrangement of the iconic “Stairway to Heaven.” The rest will include references to the moon, stars, infinity and beyond!
