  • Orchestra Concert
    King Chapel
    7:30 p.m.
    ​​The Cornell College Orchestra will perform in a concert on Friday, April 24th at 7:30 PM in King Chapel. The concert is free and open to the public. The concert will be guest conducted by R. Joseph Dieker, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dean of the College, and Professor of Music at Cornell. The concert will feature orchestral literature from the 19th and Early 20th centuries including Gioachino Rossini’s, Overture to the Barber of Seville; Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s, Danse Negre; and Johann Strauss’ famous waltz, By the Beautiful Blue Danube. The largest piece featured on the program is by Czech composer, Antonin Dvorak. His American Suite is a five-movement piece combining Dvorak’s characteristic folk rhythms with inspiration he drew from the years he spent composing, teaching, and conducting in America from 1892-95. Interestingly, Dvorak spent part of the summer of 1893 living with the Czech community in Spillville, Iowa just north of our area hearing folk music of both Czech and American origins which provided inspiration for a number of his composition including the very famous, Symphony from the New World. Dean Dieker brings to the podium more than 25 years of experience as a conductor of bands and orchestras. His experience includes serving as Director of Bands at Warner Pacific College and Culver-Stockton College, conductor of the Quincy Illinois Youth Symphony, and numerous guest conducting experiences with university and professional ensembles. He is delighted to serve as guest conductor of the Cornell College Orchestra during Dr. Martin Hearne’s sabbatical. Contact: Cathy Schonhorst

    Plumb-Fleming Black Box Theatre, Armstrong Hall
    7:30 p.m.
    "Pictures at an Exhibition": An adaptation told through puppetry, movement, and music. A collaboration between the Cornell Theatre Department and NYC's Puppet Kitchen. Composition by Modest Mussorgsky. Directed by Guest Artist Emily DeCola. The Cornell Theatre faculty and students will work with the award-winning Puppet Kitchen throughout the spring of 2015 in the creating and performing of this adaptation and expression of Modest Mussorgsky's composition "Pictures at an Exhibition," which was inspired by the paintings of architect and artist Viktor Hartmann.

Mussorgsky and Hartmann's vibrant journey will come to life in this theatrical event and artistic collaboration between students and professional artists where movement, music, and puppetry are brought together for an extraordinary experience of story-telling. The show runs April 24, 25 and May 1, 2 at 7:30 p.m. and April 26 at 2 p.m. in Kimmel Theatre. Tickets are $10 for adults, and $7 for seniors/students/youth. Free for faculty, staff, and students.
