Over the next eight months, the Constellation Concert Series at UAH will showcase the talents of a dozen world-class performers in the campus' newly renovated Roberts Recital Hall, culminating in a week-long music festival celebrating the many facets and ever-changing nature of music by American composers.
"This series will bring diverse musical performers from around the country to our university to accelerate the growth of the valued culture of music performance in the Huntsville area," says Dr. David Ragsdale, Chair of UAH's Department of Music. "In addition, the musical offerings within the series were chosen specifically to underscore the stunning beauty and acoustic versatility of the new Roberts Recital Hall."
The next performance, "Something Old, New, Borrowed, Blue," will take place on Sunday, Sept. 21, at 3 p.m. and will feature the Huntsville Chamber Wings and Huntsville Community Chorus Chamber Chorale. "This program promises to be a delightful sampling of chamber music featuring Mozart's exquisite Serenade in E-flat Major," says Dr. Ragsdale, adding that soprano Karen Young will also sing Steve Danyew's Alcott Songs based on the poetry of Louisa May Alcott.
