SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — Wittenberg University’s department of music will present a faculty artist recital at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 3, in Weaver Chapel, featuring Trudy Faber, professor of music. This is Faber’s 32nd annual organ recital since joining the music faculty at Wittenberg.
Faber will play J.S. Bach’s “Prelude and Fuge in B minor,” two settings of gospel hymns by William Bolcom, “Variations on the Austrian Hymn” by John Paine, “Prelude in D Flat” by Julia Smith and the “Sonata Eroica” by Joseph Jongen.
The musical depiction of Dylan Thomas’ poem “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night” by Vincent Persichetti, written for organ pedals only, is also included in the program. Interspersed throughout the organ piece, J. Arthur Faber, professor emeritus of English, will read verses of the Thomas poem that are appropriate to the music.
In addition to performing many concerts throughout the United States and Europe, Faber serves as organist at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Springfield. She has also accompanied the Wittenberg Choir and other choral groups in oratorio concerts, sacred operas and other musical production throughout the area.
The musical program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the music department at (937) 327-7341.
