Cameron University Civic Symphony announces spring concert

The Cameron University Civic Symphony will present its Spring 2010 concert on Monday, March 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cameron University Theatre. The ensemble, conducted by CU Assistant Professor of Music Kirsten Underwood, is comprised of CU students and faculty, Lawton community members, Lawton Public Schools Middle and High School students, and Lawton Public School string faculty. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students and military.

Featured soloists for the concert will be CU students Angelika Ramsdell of Lawton and Lorenzo Diaz of Duncan as well as Dr. Jan Logan, Assistant Professor of Music. Works to be performed include arias by Purcell and Handel, the Allegro from Tartini's Trumpet Concerto in D major, Gluck's Gavotte in G from "Paris and Helen," Battles and Brawls - A Renaissance Pageant by Edward Huws Jones, and the fun and contemporary "Baby Elephant Walk" by Mancini, as well as  Jay Ungar's "Ashokan Farewell."

New to the string ensemble this semester is the participation in each selection by three Cameron wind players:  flutist Melissa Delgado, oboist Prezell Duckett, both of Lawton, and bassoonist Fatima Rivera of Duncan. 

"The added richness contributed by our wind players is a delight," says Underwood. "We are very pleased to have the musicianship of these students be a part of the Cameron Civic Symphony this year."
