The Keene State College Music Department presents a faculty and guest artist recital of fine music on Friday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Alumni Recital Hall of the Redfern Arts Center on Brickyard Pond.

The program will feature pianists Maura Glennon and Heather Gilligan in works for two pianos, including Maurice Ravel’s Pavane for a Dead Princess, Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, and Gilligan’s Speculation for two pianos. Boston-based guest harpist Franziska Huhn will join faculty guitarist José Lezcano for a set of innovative works by Manuel Ponce, Alan Hovhaness, and Jorge Morel. The program will also feature the United States premiere of Christopher Swist’s Two Movements for Violin and Piano, played by Marcia Lehninger and Maura Glennon, and a performance of Elaine Broad Ginsberg’s Cat Songs, with Diane Cushing and Maura Glennon.
