The 2020-2021 A Little Night(hawk) Music Concert Series continues with MULTIFACETED, the debut performance of UNG’s faculty piano trio. The group, featuring professors Dr. Joanna Kim, piano, Dr. Serena Scibelli, violin, and Dr. Philip Snyder, cello, formed in 2020 and showcases just how versatile chamber music can be. Its members hail from three different countries: South Korea, Italy, and America, and the pieces they will perform on MULTIFACETED were composed in Argentina, France, and the USA. Astor Piazzola’s Argentine tango-driven Four Seasons will highlight the group’s passionate virtuosity, while Gabriel Faure’s Piano Trio in D minor, op. 120 will offer the shimmery haziness of the French Impressionist style. The concert will be rounded off by a medley from George Gershwin’s crowd pleasing opera “Porgy and Bess,” as well as a soothing, mysterious lullaby by American composer Kenji Bunch, entitled “Whispers: Lullaby for My Favorite Insomniac.” Come join us for this virtual concert experience to be aired on Monday, November 2, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. A link for the performance can be found on the events calendar of the UNG Music Department Website and we encourage you to pre-register your attendance for the event.

A Little Night(hawk) Concert series returns for the 2020-2021 concert season on Monday, October 5 at 7:30 PM with a program presented by UNG faculty member, Dr. Serena Scibelli. Entitled “Reflection,” Dr. Scibelli will present a series of old and new compositions written for solo violin. This music was an essential part of her quarantine during the pandemic and helped her to stay connected with composers and her instrument. These selections served as a way for her to reflect about her feelings and the need to stay artistically active in such unique time. The program will feature the premiere five new compositions and will culminate with the release of her solo album at the end of 2020. A link to Dr. Scibelli’s ALNM performance may be found on the events calendar of the UNG Music Department Website and we encourage you to pre-register your attendance for the event.
___ “Reflection: serious and careful thought, something that shows, expresses, or is a result of something. But also, the image of something in a mirror or on any reflective surface, the return of light, heat, sound, or energy.”

The University of North Georgia Department of Music is pleased to present a virtual recital by guest violinist Dr. Josh Holritz.
Dr. Holritz will be presenting a virtual recital in which he explores two unaccompanied works by composers J.S. Bach and Lera Auerbach. The Partita No. 2 in d minor (BWV 1004) by Bach is arguably his most well-known composition for solo violin. It’s mighty final movement, the Chaconne, reveals Bach’s undeniable genius as an artist. Auerbach’s similarly titled work, Par.ti.ta, brings Bach and the Baroque style to the 21st century. Her unique harmonic language is simultaneously accessible and abrasive with musical thought and character that run the full gamut of emotional experience.
Dr. Holritz performance will be broadcast on Wednesday, September 30 at 7:30pm. A link for the performance may be found below as well as on the events calendar of the UNG Music Department Website. We encourage you to pre-register your attendance for the event.
