Upcoming Concerts from the School of Music:

Faculty Lecture Recital: Schubert, Songfulness and the Body
Monday, Jan. 30 at 8 p.m. 
Weigel Auditorium 

In commemoration of Franz Schubert's 220th birthday, Arved Ashby, professor and area head of musicology, will discuss the nature of lyricism — its source and purpose — as demonstrated in Schubert’s haunting melodies. He will examine Schubert’s ability to make instruments “sing,” and define the special relationship that Schubert created between the human voice and the piano, and between the body as home for the voice and the mind as the source of ideas. Featured performers: Juliet White-Smith, viola; Robin Rice, baritone and Jiung Yoon, piano. This event is free and open to the public.

Symphony Orchestra
Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 8 p.m. 
Weigel Auditorium     

Overture to Ruslan and Ludmilla, Mikhail Glinka; Symphony #5 in D minor, Dmitri Shostakovich. Mark Lane Swanson, guest conductor. Swanson is the music director and conductor of the Amherst Symphony Orchestra (Massachusetts) and a music faculty member at Amherst College. This concert is free and open to the public.

Monday, Feb. 6 at 8 p.m.
Weigel Auditorium, 1866 College Rd.

Pianist Ryan Behan will perform selections from the three suites of Franz Liszt’s Années de Pèlerinage (Years of Pilgrimage). The first two volumes, “Switzerland” and “Italy,” are rich with lyrical evocations of nature, art and literature, while the third volume turns inward and focuses on spiritual matters. Highlights include Vallée d'Obermann, the Petrarch Sonnets and the Dante Sonata. Free and open to the public. 

Ohio State Jazz Ensemble: “A Love Supreme”
Friday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m.
Weigel Auditorium, 1866 College Rd.

Celebrate John Coltrane’s innovative recording of A Love Supreme as interpreted by Wynton Marsalis. This single piece in four movements will comprise the entire program.
