Georgetown, KY – The next event of Georgetown College’s “Noteworthy: A Faculty and Guest Artist Concert Series” features the Music Department chair who started this concept a year ago – Heather Winter Hunnicutt.

A noted soprano, Hunnicutt will perform with her frequent collaborator,  Lexington Catholic High School faculty member Rob Vanover, on a “Tour of Europe” at 8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 17 in John L. Hill Chapel. All events in the “Noteworthy” series are free and open to the public.

Hunnicutt calls this “a traditional art song concert” spanning hundreds of years and multiple countries in Western Europe. She’ll throw in a little opera – her specialty.

Vanover was GC’s staff accompanist during Hunnicutt’s first year at the College, six years ago.  The next year he took the position at Lexington Catholic, but they have continued their musical collaborations ever since.

Patrons can expect samplings from France, Germany, Italy, Austria and a splash of American music to finish out the program.  Hunnicutt said, “The highlight of the program will be our closer, ‘Content To Be Behind Me’ by contemporary composer Ben Moore.  It’s all about the relationship between the singer and pianist, and we believe our audience will find it as entertaining as we do!”

After “Tour of Europe,” there are three more events in Year Two of the “Noteworthy” series:

Cornet Masters. GC faculty H. M. Lewis, trumpet, presents great works by cornet masters of late nineteenth and early twentieth century America. 8 p.m., Thursday, March 15.
