Oct. 17: Tuba, euphonium and piano pair for WSU concert
PULLMAN, Wash. – A world premiere and a tuba classic will be on the program of a Washington State University concert in the Faculty Artist Series at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, in Bryan Hall. Series proceeds support the School of Music’s scholarship fund.
“Heavy Metal: Music for Tuba and Euphonium” will feature faculty member Chris Dickey on tuba and euphonium and guest pianist Kristin Elgersma. They will perform the world premiere of Elaine Fine’s “Sonata for Tuba and Piano,” Rule Beasley’s “Concerto for Euphonium,” James Grant’s “Just a Thought” and a classic in the tuba repertoire, Edward Gregson’s “Tuba Concerto.”
Tickets will be available in the lobby one hour before the performance; they are free for WSU students with ID, $10 for general admission and $5 for seniors 60 and older and non-WSU students.
The series was created in 2006. Nearly $10,000 in ticket sales has been used to support WSU music students. To view the fall schedule, visit http://libarts.wsu.edu/music/artistseries.htm.
