MU concert pays tribute to Age of Invention

Sep. 19, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The concert may have been in present day Huntington, but the music mimicked the sounds of early 19th century Europe on Wednesday evening at Marshall University's Smith Recital Hall in Huntington.

The Music from the Age of Invention concert featured Marshall music faculty members as well as two guest instrumentalists from opposite sides of the country.

The performers for the evening were Marshall professors Wendell Dobbs playing flute, Stephen Lawson on horn and Kay Lawson playing bassoon. They were joined by Seattle resident and performer Curtis Foster on oboe and University of Maryland professor and performer Richard Spence on clarinet.

All of the performers used historical reproductions of their modern instruments during the show.

An abbreviated repeat performance will take place at noon Friday, Sept. 20, at the First Presbyterian Church in Huntington, as part of the Music Alive! Series, which is a partnership between the church and the school.

That program will be free to the public. For more information, call 304-696-3117.
