A University of Maine Faculty Voice Recital featuring retiring music professor Ludlow Hallman and three colleagues will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 4, in Minsky Recital Hall on campus.
Soprano Karen Pendleton, mezzo-soprano Marcia Gronewold Sly and tenor Francis John Vogt will join Hallman, a baritone, for a program of music by Beethoven, Schumann, Mozart and Verdi. Pianist Clayton Smith will accompany the ensemble for selections from opera, oratorio and chamber music, featuring various combinations of voices.
The program’s centerpiece will be Robert Schumann’s “Spanisches Liederspiel,” a lively group of 10 songs set to adaptations of Spanish poems compiled by Emanuel Geibel. In celebration of Giuseppe Verdi’s 200th year of birth, the ensemble will perform duets and quartets from “Messa da Requiem,” “Don Carlo” and “Rigoletto.”
