FSU Student Nick Dennison to Present Junior Guitar Recital
Frostburg State University student Nick Dennison will present his junior guitar recital on Sunday, March 2, at 3 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The recital is free and open to the public.
Dennison will open the recital with “Theme and Variations on the Savojardo” by Mauro Giuliani, one of the early 19th century’s most skilled guitarists. The recital will also feature works from Francisco Tarrega “Adelita” and “Gran Vals” as well as “Prelude No. 1” from J.S. Bach’s “The Well-Tempered Clavier.” This piece is arranged by FSU guitar instructor Patrick Sise. Joining Dennison on this piece will be Robert Wallace and Seth Carter on guitar. Dennison will also perform “Keyboard Sonata, K. 147” by Domenico Scarlatti, which was arranged for guitar by Julian Gray and Ronald Pearl. Dennison will be joined by Charlie Engleka on guitar. The recital will close with “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers, joined by Carter on guitar.
Dennison studies guitar with Sise at FSU. He is a member of the FSU Guitar Ensemble. A 2009 graduate of Allegany High School, Dennison expects to graduate FSU in May 2014 with a degree in music management. He is the son of Bill and Laurie Dennison of Cumberland, Md. Dennison plans to own and operate his own music venue or recording studio.
