  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]
  • Books I Started but Never Finished
    My biggest book insecurity is not finishing a book. Even if I don’t care for the story I will usually try to still finish it. I’ve been known to force myself into finishing books I absolutely hate. I’m afraid of wasting time, but in my head if I’ve already read more than halfway it would […]

BGSU Faculty Chamber performs at museum

BGSU Faculty Chamber performs at museum

Bowling Green State University’s Faculty Chamber performed a recital in the Toledo Museum of Art Sunday, Oct. 23.

The performance was held in the scenic Great Gallery, which features various paintings from different eras of time.

Assistant professor of the flute Terri Sanchez and professor of piano Solungga Liu opened the recital playing “Spiral Lament, composed by Ian Clarke. 

“It’s a really cool effect, sort of creepy,” Professor of piano Laura Melton said about the opening performance.

Following Sanchez and Liu was assistant professor of voice and opera Keith Phares, accompanied by associate teaching professor of ensemble Kevin Bylsma. They performed several pieces by composer Henri DuParc. 

During their performance, the audience was able to enjoy Phares’ powerful baritone vocals while taking in the art showcased in The Great Gallery. 

The final pieces of the recital were performed by associate professor of violin Caroline Chin and Laura Melton. 

Melton described the Faculty Chamber event as “a community outreach [performance].

The performance promotes both the museum and BGSU music, as visitors and audience members have the opportunity to come together and enjoy both at the same time. 

The faculty chamber has played in the museum countless times over the years, and continues to return because of how much they enjoyed the experience.

The organization has been playing at the museum for over 20 years, with many different faculty members getting the opportunity to play over the years.

“You walk in [the museum] and it’s just awe-inspiring,” Melton said. 

Her opinion is shared by her colleagues, and most notably her duet partner Chin, who said it’s a “beautiful place to play in,” Melton said.
