RVCC to Present Benefit Concert Featuring Baritone and Pianist
WHEN: Sunday, September 26, at 2 p.m.
WHERE: Welpe Theatre
at RVCC’s campus, 118 Lamington Rd., Branchburg, and also will be streamed live at https://www.facebook.com/RVCCMusic TICKETS: freebut donations are accepted and will go to the RVCC Applied Music Fund to help the College’s music majors pay for private lessons on their primary instruments.
Masks are required in all RVCC facilities and social distancing will be followed.
The Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) Arts & Design department will present a concert featuring baritone Christopher Dylan Herbert and pianist Anna Keiserman.
The concert will feature works by Maurice Ravel, Pyotr
Tchaikovsky, and rarely performed composers Georgi Sviridov and Marion
Bauer. The center piece of the program is Petersburg, a cycle by Georgi
Sviridov with text by Russian poet Alexandr Blok. The cycle reflects the
traumatic state of mind and soul that permeated Russian society in the
“Silver Age” of Russian arts and letters preceding World War I.
The performance is part of the department’s MOZAIKA Concert
Series, launched in fall 2020 to help defray the cost of private
instructional lessons for RVCC music majors. The series is designed to
promote multicultural dialogue through the performance of music from the
classical canon through the 21st Century.
A post-performance discussion with the artists will follow
The concert also will be available for viewing online after
the initial performance date.
