SUU’s Second Annual Abendmusik: Adjunct Faculty Recital

Southern Utah University’s department of music is hosting its second annual Abendmusik: Adjunct Faculty Recital this Tuesday, Feb. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Southern Utah Museum of Art.

The show is free and open to the public and highlights SUU’s adjunct faculty. Professors will perform using the skills that they teach to students on a daily basis.

Adrienne Read, adjunct professor of music, said to expect a wide assortment of musical styles at the event. Baroque, modern pieces, jazz, flutes and drums will be included, as well as music from Africa, South America and Asia.

Read said, “There is nothing that can compare to attending live performances, and the upcoming Adjunct Faculty Recital will be a treat for those who attend. I am looking forward to another opportunity to perform with Dr. Roland Stearns. This semester will feature him on the lute as we play some delightful pieces from the Baroque era of music history. Dr. Stearns’ style and interpretation are world-class, and it’s always an honor for me to work with a talented, knowledgeable musician of his caliber.”

Michelle Lambert, an adjunct professor in the music department, will also be performing alongside Read and Dr. Stearns.
