FSU Student Amanda J. Kiser to Present Senior Flute Recital
Frostburg State University student Amanda J. Kiser will present a senior flute recital on Saturday, May 11, at 8 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. She will be accompanied by Dr. Jay DeWire on piano and will be assisted by guest artists Pamela Murchison on flute, Greg Jaeger on percussion and Mike Murphy on bass. The recital is free and open to the public.
Kiser will begin her recital with “Hamburger Sonate,” a two-movement piece by C.P.E Bach, the second son of Johann Sebastian Bach. She will then play a salsa song, “Charanga,” by the solo-flutist Michael Colquhoun. Murchison will assist her with Giacchino Rossini’s “No. 1 Ouverture” from “The Barber of Saville,” after which she will play “Fantaisie for Flute,” a song by Georges Hue that shows off the flutist’s technical skills. For her final song, she will be accompanied by DeWire, Jaeger and Murphy. They will play a clever combination of flute and jazz, “Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio,” by the French composer and pianist Claude Bolling.
A 2008 graduate of Downingtown West High School in Downingtown, Pa., Kiser expects to graduate in June with a Bachelor’s degree in Music. She is a member of Delta Omicron, the International Music Fraternity. She is the daughter of Barb and Wayne Kiser of Breinigsville, Pa. Her career goals include becoming a music educator.
