By Gerald Carpenter, Noozhawk Contributing Writer | Published on 04.15.2014 6:01 p.m.
UCSB's sensational new "Spotlight" concert series gives new depth and breadth to the term "eclectic." The next installment will take place at 4 p.m. Wednesday in Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall in the UCSB Music Building.
Jeremy Haladyna will host the event, as well as making a major contribution as performer. Admission is free.
The concert will begin with the Sonata for Trombone and Piano, "Vox Gabrieli" by Stjepan Sulek (1914-86), with Elizabeth Cowder on trombone and Natasha Kislenko on piano; followed by the Agincourt Hymn of John Dunstaple (c. 1390-1453) plus the "Pauana de Alexandre" and "Gallarda" from the Tres libros de música of Alonso Mudarra (c. 1510-80), performed by organist Haladyna, after which he will reseat himself at the piano to play the "Pastorale" and "Passacaglia" from Diversions, Opus 95 by Peter Racine Fricker (1920-90).
