Faculty Chamber Music recital to be held

The Furman Faculty Chamber Music Series will present its season finale concert Tuesday, March 26 at 8 p.m. in Daniel Recital Hall on campus. A reception follows the performance in the Herring Music Pavilion.

The concert, “From Darkness to Light,” is open to the public. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $5 for students.

Violoncello professor and host Christopher Hutton along with eighteen Furman music faculty members will perform Johannes Brahms’ dark “Piano Trio in C minor;” songs by William Bolcom; Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Fantaisie” for violin and harp; Walter Hartley’s “Two Dances” for piano, trumpet, and clarinet; an extraordinary piece by Leoš Janá?ek for piano, flute, and brass.

Hutton is the cellist of Greenville-based Poinsett Piano Trio. A native of New Zealand, he has performed across the globe and worked with a number of orchestras including the New World Symphony and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. He has recorded for New Zealand’s Concert FM and Germany’s SWF Radio as well as Albany Classics for a disc of contemporary chamber music.

A graduate of Boston University and the University of Rochester’s Eastman School of Music, Hutton taught at the University of Rochester, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the University of Delaware before joining the Furman music faculty in 2003.
