The Music of Stravinsky and Walton – The Dana Ensemble

Sunday, October 3, 2021 @ 3:00 pm

Allan Mosher

The Dana School of Music announces a concert by the Dana Ensemble on Sunday, October 3, at 3:00pm at the Ford Family Recital Hall in the DeYor Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 for general admission and free for YSU students, faculty and staff with a valid ID, and available at deyorpac.org or at the door.

The Dana Ensemble is comprised of a flexible, modular roster of Dana School of Music faculty, which will often be joined by regional guest artists, coming together multiple times each semester for live performances in the area’s iconic performance spaces.

The program opens with William Walton’s “Facade: An Entertainment.” This piece is scored for the unusual instrumentation of flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, cello, and percussion, which provides the accompaniment for rhythmic spoken poetry by Edith Sitwell. Dana instrumentalists will provide the music, and Dana classroom faculty Jena Root, Steve Reale, and Randall Goldberg will read the poems. Members of the Dana Ensemble performing the Walton piece include Kathryn Umble, flute; Alice Wang, clarinet; James Umble, saxophone; Justin Kohan, trumpet; Glenn Schaft, percussion; Kivie Cahn-Lipman, cello; with Jena Root, Steve Reale, and Randall Goldberg, reciters. Stravinsky’s “Soldier’s Tale” is a theatrical work based on a Russian folk tale, in which a soldier returning home encounters the devil. Emeritus professor of voice Allan Mosher will provide the narration for the Stravinsky piece, accompanied by Dana faculty and guests Alice Wang, clarinet; Grace Houde, bassoon; Justin Kohan, trumpet; Andrew Mitchell, trombone; Glenn Schaft, percussion; Wendy Case, violin and Sue Yelanjian, bass.
