BSC chamber groups perform Tuesday

Posted on 11/17/2011

The Bismarck State College Music program features its chamber ensembles in concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22, in Sidney J. Lee Auditorium.

Performing are the Guitar Ensemble, Woodwind Ensemble, Brass Ensemble, String Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, and Saxophone Ensemble.

The program contains a variety of musical styles and eras from classical to contemporary and gospel, as well as two pieces associated with the Christmas holidays. Among the classical selections are Purcell's Sonata in G major, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition - "Promenade," Mozart's Quartet No. 14 in G major, and Gounod's "Funeral March of a Marionette."

Lighter pieces include the "Sailors' Hornpipe," "Gospel Fever," "Mr. Hipp," and "Stinkin' Garbage," a finale performed by the Percussion Ensemble.

Chamber ensemble directors are John Darling and Jeanette Reyberg, woodwinds; Rob Peske, percussion; Brianna Fuzesy, brass; Doug Klein, guitar; and Everaldo Flores, strings.

The origins of chamber music can be traced to the classical period where music was written for a small group of instruments that could fit in a palace chamber. In the modern and broader context, chamber music includes any art music played by a small number of performers with one performer to a part, and generally has no formal conductor.
