Public invited to Lori Sims recording sessions

June 11, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Pianist Lori Sims, a professor of music at Western Michigan University, will record performances for an upcoming solo CD before a live audience in the Dalton Center Recital Hall Friday, June 27, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 28, at 4 p.m.

Both performances are free and open to the public. Those interested in attending must arrive and be seated before the sessions begin and will be permitted to leave and enter the hall only during designated break periods. The audience will also be asked to remain silent during recording.

The recording is being made possible by a grant from Western Michigan University's Faculty Research and Creative Activities Support Fund, and Sims prefers to add the "edge" of a live audience as she records. The repertoire is a reprise of the recital Sims presented at the 2002 Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival. Works include Waltzes from Opus 16 by Johannes Brahms; Romances from Op. 10 and the Op. 11 Scherzo by Clara Schumann; and Brahms' "Variations on a Theme by Handel."
