April 28, 2013
ESC Symphony Orchestra and ESC Choir: Combined Concert
Dr. Thomas Smith and Professor Candace Baranowski-Sundby, Directors
3:00p.m., Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall

Under the direction of Candace Baranowski-Sundby, and accompanied by the ESC Symphony Orchestra, the Edison State College Choir will perform Franz Schubert’s Mass No.2. This Mass in G, the shortest of Schubert’s seven masses, was composed in less than a week. Its first performance took place in 1815 in the 18-year-old Schubert’s parish church in Lichtenthal. Perfect for a small church, the original score is for string orchestra and organ in addition to soprano, tenor, and bass soloists and choir. It is a gentle lyrical Mass that exudes an overall mood of devotion. Immediately following the choir’s performance, the ESC Symphony, under the direction of Dr. Thomas Smith, will feature the talents of student saxophone soloist, Gabriel Wallace, as he performs the famous Glazunov Saxophone Concerto, one of the pillars of classical saxophone literature. Also on the program will be the beloved Finlandia, by Finnish composer, Jean Sibelius. The final composition of the program will be Aaron Copland’s delightful Hoedown, from his famous ballet: Rodeo.

Good

“A dream of reason produces monsters” --Goya

What makes us happy can’t be bad. Can it?

That’s the question Edison State College Theatre’s play Good poses to theatre-goers in a sophisticated mix of humor, music and drama. Centered around bookish professor, John Halder, during the rise of the Nazi Party in pre-World War II Germany, Good examines how a series of small, expedient decisions can lead to things terrible and totally unimaginable. Halder’s journey from simple man to villain is a poignant, witty, and sometimes surreal expedition into ethical marshes that begs the question: what is good? And how can good men do evil things?

Good runs March 18th-21st, and 25th- 28th at Edison State College, in L119 B in the Humanities Hall. Curtain is at 8pm, tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for students. For tickets, call the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Center at 239-481-4849 or tickets@bbmannpah.com. Due to adult language, those under 17 years of age will not be admitted.

For more information about Edison State College Theatre, please contact Stuart Brown at Edison State College (239) 433-8007.
