Congratulations to soprano Eby Buscher, who passed her hearing yesterday for her senior recital! Her recital repertoire, includes pieces with her collaborators, Olivia Higgins (harp), Bridget Kennedy (mezzo-soprano), and Robby Napoli (tenor). After performing her recital pieces for her hearing, her panelists congratulated her in telling her she had passed! This now means that she can move on to creating posters for advertising, printing program notes, and finalizing the last logistical tasks for her recital. Stay tuned for an interview with Eby about her recital!
Senior Recital Interview: Robby Napoli
Christmas Offering Concert
Lux is very excited to announce that we will be a featured ensemble in Music, Gettysburg!'s Christmas Offering concert on Dec. 16 at 7pm! Music, Gettysburg! is a premier concert series featuring international, regional and local musical artists for the greater south central Pennsylvania region. Lux will perform some pieces alone, and some alongside the Gettysburg Children's Choir and High School Chorale and artistic director Dr. Brent Talbot, with whom soprano Eby Buscher is an intern, following Robby Napoli, who worked with Dr. Talbot and the children's choir just last year.
On the program, Lux will perform Paul Mealor's A Spotless Rose, which can be heard on our most recent album, and Morten Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium, as well as performing Daniel Elder's Elegy with the High School Chorale. To round out the program, Lux will join the Gettysburg Children's Choir on two more pieces: Nos Galan by Frank Ferko, and a newly commissioned piece specifically for the occasion. Between the event, the repertoire, and the performers, this will surely prove to be an especially exciting collaboration!
The concert is free and open to the public, and will be held on December 16, 2018, at 7pm at the United Lutheran Seminary Chapel, at 147 Seminary Ridge, Gettysburg, PA. For more information, click the button below.
Senior Recital: Robby Napoli
Director Robby Napoli passed his recital hearing this week, which means his senior recital is official! After a months-long process of preparing music, program notes, and planning, he performed with collaborators Dr. Scott Crowne, Jasmin Eddy, Rick Hale, and Aaron Thompson, in front of his judging panelists, who approved his recital. We are incredibly excited to announce that his recital, featuring just over 30 minutes of music ranging from Bach to Barber to Craig Carnelia, will be on Sunday, October 28, at 2:30 pm. Aside from his student-teaching, which he will do in the Spring, this is one of the large projects leading up to his graduation at the end of the academic year! The recital, which is free and open to the public, will be held in Paul Recital Hall, at the Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College.
