Faculty Artist Recital

Dr. Carolyn Bremer, composition

The 2015-16 Bob Cole Faculty Artist Series opens with a recital of works by Carolyn Bremer, Director of the conservatory. Repertoire includes compositions from the last twenty years. It features the Bob Cole Chamber Choir performing The Other Shore, composed in memory of Dr. Michael Carney, former Director of Percussion at CSULB. This compelling work is about how a deep understanding of impermanence can bring peace and healing. Current Director of Percussion, Ted Atkatz, joins the choir performing on vibraphone. A brass quintet, a set of feminist songs for soprano and piano (texts by poet Judy Grahn, internationally known as a poet, writer, and cultural theorist), and a Tibetan singing bowls prequel to The Other Shore round out the concert.
