The Keighton Fund of Curry College Presents, 'The Song Cycle: Beethoven and Schumann'
September 30, 2014
Hafer Academic Building, Parents' Lounge
The Keighton Fund will proudly present The Song Cycle: Beethoven and Schumann on September 30 at 7:00 p.m. This event will be held in the Parents' Lounge of the Hafer Academic Building. A reception will follow the performance.
Renowned Tenor William Hite and Pianist Ann Sears will perform works from noted German composers Ludwig van Beethoven and Robert Schumann. Hite and Sears will perform Beethoven's 1816 composition An die ferne Geliebte and Schumann's 1840 work Dichterliebe. Both works are classic examples of song cycles-performances where several songs are performed in sequence. An die ferne Geliebte is widely considered to be the first example of this musical style.
The Keighton Fund was established in 1990 by the Pines Bridge Foundation and named for Dr. Robert L. Keighton, an active and dedicated Professor of Politics and History, who has been teaching at Curry College for more than 45 years. The purpose of the fund is "to provide lectures and performances at Curry College by individuals who are prominent in the fields of academics, arts, sciences and public service."
