Oct. 17, 2000

KALAMAZOO -- Western Michigan University's celebrated keyboard faculty will take the spotlight on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 5, under the auspices of the Dalton Series, a project of the Donald P. Bullock Music Performance Institute. The concert begins at 3 p.m. in the Dalton Center Recital Hall.

Titled "Bach and Forth," the program promises an afternoon of beautiful keyboard music by prolific composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Pianos will fill the stage for the featured piece, the Concerto for Four Keyboards, BWV 1065.

University Organist Karl Schrock will perform the Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 565, commonly known by its association with the Phantom of the Opera. Other works include the Partita No. 5 in D Major, some preludes and fugues, Rachmaninoff's transcription of the E Major Violin Sonata, and on a whimsical note, P.D.Q. Bach's Toot Suite.

Performers include Silvia Roederer, Lori Sims, Karl Schrock, David Gross, and Phyllis Rappeport, as well as conductor Chung Park.

General admission tickets are $15 each. Students and seniors will be charged $5. Tickets are available from the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office, 616 387-2300 or toll free 800 228-9858.
