Nov. 4, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Collegium Musicum at Western Michigan University will present a special tribute concert to Dr. Audrey Davidson, professor emerita of music, beginning at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 11, in the Dalton Center Recital Hall. The performance is free and open to the public.

The concert will feature Giacomo Carissimi's oratorio "Jephte" for soloists, chorus and orchestra. Soloists include music voice faculty members Monica Griffin and Joe Miller.

Davidson retired from the School of Music in 1993, after 28 years with the University. She is a longtime supporter of the WMU Collegium Musicum. Her works on both early and modern music have been widely published. For 25 years, she served as the musical director of the Society for Old Music, which regularly presents concerts for the Kalamazoo community and the International Congress on Medieval Studies, held annually at WMU.
