Il Portale Musicale

When: 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 25

Where: Pearce Auditorium, 500 Washington St., Gainesville

Cost: Free

A juried group of students from the Brenau University Music Department will perform an evening of vocal and piano literature in the Honors Il Portale Musicale recital at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 25, in Pearce Auditorium, 500 Washington St., Gainesville.

The event is free and open to the public.

The department puts on two Il Portale concerts a year, the second of which, the Honors Il Portale, is a juried show. Music Department Chairwoman Dr. Barbara Steinhaus said it is important for students to perform in public.

“The honors performance is a way to give students something to strive for,” Steinhaus said. “We want to encourage them to take their performing to the next level.”

Highlights of the evening will include Gabriel Faure’s “Claire du Lune” performed by music performance major Jie Pan; Aaron Copland’s “Laurie’s Song” from the opera “The Tender Land” performed by music education major Keisha Boykin; and freshman Brenau Scholar Rachel McFarland singing Hugo Wolf’s “Verborgenheit.”
