Faculty series to examine female life and love in season opener
UPDATED (Sept. 8, 2017): The Sept. 12 recital by Elizabeth Knight has been cancelled, according to an announcement from the Hugh Hodgson School of Music.
The first Hugh Hodgson Faculty Series recital of 2017-2018 showcases Elizabeth Knight, lecturer in voice, in Ramsey Concert Hall Sept. 12 at 8 p.m.
"I Make My Magic," Knight's first ever recital in the faculty series, examines treatments of female life and love in songs from various times, styles and composers. Knight will be accompanied by pianist Richard Seiler, professor of piano at the University of Louisiana at Monroe and a former colleague of Knight's.
"The repertoire for the recital is in three groups: Schumann's Frauenliebe und Leben, Debussy's Trois chansons de Bilitis and Libby Larsen's Love After 1950," said Knight. "They all follow a female central character through different phases of life and love, from first awakening of love and sensuality through to maturity."
Tickets to the concert are $12 each or $6 for students and children and can be purchased at pac.uga.edu or the PAC box office. Those unable to attend can watch the concert live on the Hodgson School's website at music.uga.edu/streaming.
