The Brenau East Campus at the Featherbone Communiversity – home to the university’s nursing and occupational therapy programs – is the site of “An Apple a Day,” a concert scheduled Friday, Oct. 9 at 5:30 p.m.
The recital, which is free and open to the public, will feature Brenau faculty teaming up with members of the Bach Society of Atlanta to pay homage to iconic German composers Johann Sebastian Bach and Richard Strauss.
Brenau’s Department of Music Chair Dr. Barbara Steinhaus will join fellow professors Dr. Jenene Craig and Ben Leaptrott to perform Bach’s Magnificant, which will be followed by a Brenau Vocal Chamber Ensemble performance conducted by professor Bobby Ivey. Steinhaus will also share the spotlight with Brenau applied voice instructors Jan Grisson and Nan Nowell for a rendition of the third act of Strauss’ comic opera Der Rosenkavalier. There will even be a tribute to the late Ward Swingle, a Grammy-winning artist who is best known for his jazzy, scat-singing iterations of Bach’s most acclaimed works.
Others set to hit the stage include Brenau’s Keith and Priscilla Jefcoat; Brenau junior Shelby Cody, a music performance major from Mount Airy, Georgia; 2015 Brenau grad Dannin Duncan; and visiting University of North Georgia professor Bruce Sellers.
“An Apple a Day” takes place in the Whalen Auditorium. The Brenau East Campus is at 1001 Chestnut St. SE in Gainesville.
