The opening concert of the Furman Faculty Chamber Music Series will be performed on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 8 p.m. in Daniel Recital Hall on campus. A reception will follow the event.

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

Hosted by Furman music professor Laura Kennedy, this 90-minute recital will present the music of Benjamin Britten, Gabriel Fauré, Morton Gould, Darius Milhaud, Miles Davis and Eddie Harris.

Eighteen faculty members will present selections including “Songs from the Chinese,” Fauré’s Piano Trio, op. 120, “Benny’s Gig,” “Catalogue des Fleurs,” and jazz numbers, “So What” and “Freedom Jazz Dance.”

Kennedy joined the Furman faculty in 2012. She is a musicologist specializing in twentieth-century music and Russian studies. Born in Michigan, Kennedy moved to the island of Guernsey (Great Britain) as a teenager, where she studied under faculty from the Royal College of Music in London, and attended music courses at Oxford University. She holds a bachelor’s in music from Wheaton and a Ph.D. in historical musicology from the University of Michigan. Kennedy’s research has been supported by numerous grants and fellowships, including a Fulbright Fellowship to Russia and Rackham Humanities Research and Dissertation Fellowships.
