Drawing Room Chamber Concert – Francis Laws
March 28 @ 7:30 pm
The March 28 Drawing Room Chamber Concert will feature a special program with Francis Laws at 7:30 pm at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center. Francis will explore the history of this unique instrument using several of the rarer versions of the euphonium such as the double bell euphonium from the late 1800s and early 1900s. He will also share with us the nuances of the British baritone. Mr. Laws will be performing several compositions written for the modern euphonium by contemporary composers such Donald White and Stephen Bulla.
Joining Francis will be Amanda Roberts on the piano. Amanda is an active composer, arranger, and teacher and has also held collaborative piano posts with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Chorus and the Dayton Chamber Singers and was a member of COCOA (Composers of Ohio Collaborative Organization for Acoustic Music) in Dayton. She has appeared as a percussionist and pianist with several orchestras along with the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America and Band of Flight.
Since 1998 this intimate chamber series has been presented at the Hayner on the last Tuesday of most months in the school year.
Beginning in 2017 we are pleased to have concert pianist Steven Aldredge as our host. Steven is also a sought-after composer and an educator at Wright State University. The series is presented free to the public through the generosity of the citizens of Troy and our loyal sponsors.
