Springfield, Ohio - The Wittenberg University music department, with the generous support of Wittenberg alumni Jim Lagos class of 1970, and Nike Pavlatos Lagos, class of 1974, will host a special performance titled L'Historie Du Soldat by Igor Stravinsky, at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22 in the open courtyard at Krieg Hall on campus.
L'Historie du Soldat translated means "The Soldier's Tale." This mini-play with music will bring together a mixture of Wittenberg faculty and will feature conductor Tom Kennedy, associate professor of music, and English professor J. Arthur Faber as the narrator. Yellow Springs resident Walter Rhodes plays the Devil, and Rhodes' real-life son, Glenn Reed, a student at Yellow Springs High School, will portray the naive soldier.
Seven musicians made up mostly of Wittenberg faculty and a junior dance major, Erin Bonner, will be performing at this cultural event which is free and open to the public. The outdoor performance should last about an hour, and chairs will be provided for the comfort of the audience. In case of rain, the performance will be in room 300 inside Krieg Hall.
