Shepherd Music Salon Series - Shepherd Three

The Shepherd University Music Department presents the fifth concert in its new monthly Shepherd Music Salon Series in the W. H. Shipley Recital Hall of the Frank Arts Center. On Saturday, February 25 at 7:30 p.m. the Shepherd Three, the faculty wind trio of Shepherd University, will perform a concert free and open to the public.

The program will feature a new arrangement for flute, oboe and bassoon of various arias from Mozart's Don Giovanni, a Stamitz Trio Sonata, the Terzetto for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano by Lalliett, the second movement of the Sonata for Flute and Oboe by Madeline Dring and a Trio Sonata by J.S. Bach.

Anne Munro (Applied Professor of Flute), Greg Shook (Applied Professor of Oboe) and Richard Polonchak (Applied Professor of Bassoon), form Shepherd Three which has been in existence since December of 2005. They are also principal players of the Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra. The three will be joined by Dr. Laura Renninger, co-chair of the Shepherd Music Department and coordinator of Music History and Appreciation, on piano and harpsichord.

During the day of the concert, Greg Shook and Richard Polonchak will host Shepherd University's Annual Double Reed Day. For "people who play" and for "people who work with people who play" double reed instruments, the seminar is open to high school double reed players and instrumental music teachers and directors who have an interest in double reed instruments. Part of the afternoon includes a "master class style" Shepherd Three rehearsal where participants can both listen and participate in a rehearsal "sit in." Participation in Double Reed Day is free, although registration is required. For further information about Double Reed Day, contact Anne Munro at 304-876-5555, or email amunro@shepherd.edu. Registration forms are available on the Music Department website.
