“Love, Marriage, and Death” is an interdisciplinary capstone recital conducted by Tyler Ehrlich, a Master’s candidate in conducting at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music. The event, held on April 5th at 5:30PM in the Atrium of the Lamar Dodd School of Art, brings twenty artists together from the University, with representation from the winds, brass, percussion, string, piano, voice, and dance areas.
The recital will begin with the late Steven Stucky’s work for mezzo soprano and chamber ensemble, Sappho Fragments. This composition, featuring Allison Gross, utilizes text from the essential Greek lyric poet, Sappho. The second work, Paul Hindemith’s final ballet, Hérodiade, features Mary Beth Stinson and Gracie Bailey from the University of Georgia Dance Department. Finally, the recital will close with the iconic overture to one of Mozart’s most memorable operas, The Marriage of Figaro, arranged for harmonie ensemble.
The event is free and open to the public. Funding has been graciously provided by The Willson Center Graduate Research Award to make this recital possible.
