Birmingham-Southern to present classical music concert by New York ensemble

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—The Goliard Ensemble, featuring some of New York's most talented musicians, will perform in two concerts at Birmingham-Southern College on Tuesday, Oct. 14.

The performances will be held at 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Hill Music Building/Recital Hall as part of the group's 11th Annual Southeastern Music Festival Tour.

The 11 a.m. concert, sponsored by BSC's Fine Arts Society, will include works by Telemann, Mendelssohn, and Bernstein. The 7:30 p.m. concert, sponsored by the Birmingham Art Music Alliance, will feature works by members of the alliance, including BSC assistant professor of music Dr. Dorothy Hindman.

BSC professor of music Dr. Charles Mason's new composition A Completed Portrait of Picasso, written from the setting of a Gertrude Stein poem and recently premiered in New York, will be included in both concerts.
