Guitar Ensemble Presents Concert Nov. 21
11.15.13 |
The Lebanon Valley College Music Department presents a performance by the student guitar ensemble on Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in Lutz Hall of the Blair Music Center. The concert is free and open to the public.

The ensemble will perform a variety of pieces from classical, blues, and jazz music, including "Plumb Crumble," a new take on Handel's classic "Allegro," and "Monkish Blues." The ensemble is composed entirely of LVC music majors, including Nick Cove, Braxton Kocher, Cody Esposito, Corry Robert, Julian Gerace, Nick Hartman, Ryan Good, Dean Howey, Matt Stengel, Anthony Lucrizi, Aaron Abercrombie, John DiCocco, Jalen Cliatt, John McCarghy, Jason Dietz, Jamie Duffy, Drew Piros, Nate Lawton, Andrew Neal, and Evan Winslow.

Director Joe Mixon, adjunct professor of music, describes "Plumb Crumble" as an "up-tempo piece with lots of spirit and fire." The pastoral ode, "Allegro," will be given a unique treatment with the guitar, and "Monkish Blues" is a tribute to famous jazz composer Theloneus Monk with "creative use of harmonic texture and complexity."

Mixon, who has been director of guitar studies at the College for more than 20 years, established the LVC guitar ensemble in 1994. The ensemble seeks to explore a diverse array of genres, including jazz, blues, rock, classical, and world music. Mixon says the quality of the music comes down not only to talent, but also to the time and energy the students are willing to devote to their craft. "Their hard work and dedication comes out in the quality of our concert performance."
