Three KSC Trumpeters Perform in Recital

KEENE, N.H. 11/4/02 - Three Keene State College trumpet students will perform in a music recital on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 3 p.m. in the Alumni Recital Hall of the Redfern Arts Center on Brickyard Pond. The KSC Department of Music will present the recital free of charge. For further information, call 603-358-2177.

The three trumpeters - Renée Hatch of Bennington, Vt., Hilary Pitha of Dalton, Mass., and Scott Graf of South Dennis, Mass. - will be accompanied through separate programs by artist-in-residence George Loring, piano. KSC trumpet instructor Daniel Farina teaches all three students.

Hatch, a senior music major, will perform Kent Kemans Sonata for Trumpet and Alexander Goedickes Concert Etude. She also will play The Prayer of St. Gregory by Alan Hovhaness. Graf and Pitha, both senior music majors, will perform various works for trumpet.

While at Keene State, Hatch has performed with the KSC Concert Band, the KSC Jazz Band, the KSC Chamber Orchestra, the KSC Chamber Singers and the KSC Concert Choir. She also has played with the Keene Chamber Orchestra. She is a member of the Music Educators National Conference and served as treasurer of its campus chapter during her junior year.

All senior music majors are required to present a public recital to meet graduation requirements for a music degree from Keene State. The students are responsible for organizing all aspects of a recital from music selection, to technical direction, to publicity and the program.

Students interested in music may opt for one of three programs: bachelor of music in music education, bachelor of music in music performance, or a bachelor of arts in music. Keene State offers more than 35 major programs of study and has an enrollment of 5,165 full and part-time students with more than 100 students choosing to major or minor in music.
