Thursday’s “Broadway Love Songs” is the fifth in the “Noteworthy: A Faculty and Guest Artist Concert Series” at Georgetown College. The public is invited to this free hour-long performance of show-stoppers at 8 p.m. (Nov. 11) in John L. Hill Chapel
Daniel Bell (tenor) and Dr. Wes Golightly (piano), both members of the Music faculty at Kentucky Christian University, will take the audience on a journey through the last century on Broadway and perform such love songs as “On the Street Where You Live,” “Younger Than Springtime” and “Johanna.”
This new series will then take a break until the new year when the ever-popular Faculty Showcase Recital returns at 3 p.m. on Sunday, January 30 in Hill Chapel. That’s when the Georgetown College Music faculty will entertain with a variety of instruments and voices, from various time periods and composers.
“Noteworthy” is the vision of Heather Winter Hunnicutt, Chair of Georgetown’s Department of Music. She sang in the inaugural concert earlier this fall and will perform again as part of a new ensemble of regional singers known as Opera Appalachia on March 4 at 8 p.m. They will stage presentations of some of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s most beloved works for “An Evening of Mozart.” Hunnicutt’s former star pupil Ryland Pope, Class of ’09 and a Harlan native, is a member of the quintet.
“Die schöne Müllerin” – one of the most widely-performed and beloved cycles of German Lieder from the Romantic period – concludes this first “Noteworthy” season at 8 p.m., March 23, 201l. Tenor David Sievers will be accompanied by John Benjamin on piano.
