Stones River Chamber Players Kick Off Season of ‘Faculty Favorites’

The Stones River Chamber Players, MTSU’s faculty chamber-music ensemble, will celebrate a new season with its first “Faculty Favorites” Monday, Oct. 8, in the Hinton Music Hall inside the university’s Wright Music Building. 


Angela DeBoer, faculty horn player and co-director of the group, said the free 7:30 p.m. performance will kick off the ensemble’s 2012-13 season.


The program will include performances of:



  • “Trio” by Grazyna Bacewicz for violin, oboe and cello, a favorite of MTSU violinist Andrea Dawson, who’ll be accompanied by oboist Laura Ann Ross and cellist Christine Kim;

  • Klaus Wüsthoff’s “Concierto de Samba,” selected by faculty guitarist William Yelverton accompanied by Dawson and flutist Deanna Little and Dawson;

  • “Auf dem Strom” by Franz Schubert for soprano, horn and piano, featuring soprano Dina Cancryn, pianist Lynn Rice-See and DeBoer; and

  • a favorite of School of Music director Dr. George Riordan, J.C. Bach’s “Quintet in D Major,” performed by Riordan on the oboe, Jessica Dunnavant on flute, Dawson on violin, Kim on cello and Lillian Pearson on the harpsichord.

More “Faculty Favorites” performances by the SRCP are scheduled next semester on Feb. 25 and April 8. Like the kickoff performance, they’ll begin at 7:30 p.m. in Hinton Hall.
