The School of Music is featuring UTRGV musicians for the annual Faculty Showcase Concert from 7:30 to 9 tonight in the UTRGV Performing Arts Complex Auditorium in Edinburg.
“This is going to be a chance for [the] music department on both campuses to offer performances of one selection by a wide variety of our faculty,” said Krista Jobson, an assistant professor in the music department.
The concert will feature Associate Professor Mark Ramirez, marimba and drumset; Lecturer Dino Mulic, piano; Associate Professor Jonathan Guist, clarinet; Jobson, flute; Lecturer Hector Rodriguez, guitar; and Associate Professor Kenneth Saxon, piano. They will perform works by Boris Papandopulo, Jörg Widmann, Sonatina, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Sergei Rachmaninoff.
“Dr. Jobson contacted all faculty asking if they would like to participate,” Ramirez said. “I think it would be a great way to bring the community together as a gala.”
Jobson organized the concert to give the community a chance to see the talent among the staff. To give a variety to the audience, different musicians will perform.
“One thing that’s really great about musicians is that we are always wanting to perform,” Jobson said. “We are always looking for opportunities.”
Tickets can be purchased on patron.utrgv.edu for future concerts and events.
