Faculty Artist Series: Heather Armstrong, Oboe

  • Date: Thursday, October 23, 2014
  • Time: 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
  • Location: Noble Recital Hall, Jenson-Noble Hall of Music

Heather Armstrong, Luther College associate professor of music, will perform an oboe recital  at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, in the Noble Recital Hall of the Jenson-Noble Hall of Music on the Luther campus.

The recital is open to the public with no charge for admission.

Collaborating on the recital are Luther faculty members Xiao Hu, associate professor of music; piano, and Spencer Martin, associate professor of music; viola.

The program features music that is inspired by poetry, ideas, and images related to the natural world. William Bolcom's "Aubade: for the Continuation of Life" was inspired by Jonathan Schell's 1982 book "The Fate of the Earth," which explores the consequences of nuclear war on humanity and on the planet. Joseph Schwanter's "Black Anenomes" and Charles Loeffler's "Two Rhapsodies" are both inspired by poetry, and Paul Reade's "Aspects of a Landscape" musically depicts the dawning of day and the birdsongs that accompany it.
