World Music and Dance in Singletary Spotlight

Published: Apr 4, 2013

LEXINGTON, KY. (April 4, 2013) —Join the University of Kentucky School of Music for the spring World Music Concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at the Singletary Center for the Arts Recital Hall. The concert is free and open to the public.

 

This spring's World Music concert will feature music and dance from areas around the world, including China, Korea, Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Ireland and Appalachia.

 

To begin, Allison Duvall and the McTeggart Ceili Club will get your toes tapping with their Irish set dances including both soft and hardshoe numbers. A performance by virtuosic Chinese erhu and pipa players, Xiaowan Chu and Melinda Lio, is also on tap for the evening.

 

From the university, the UK Bluegrass Ensemble will perform traditional Appalachian, gospel and folk favorites under the direction of Tanner Jones. The UK "Performing World Music" classes, led by Erin Walker, a lecturer in the School of Music, will play several Caribbean calypso tunes on steel pans.

 

Additionally, Donna Kwon’s UK Korean Ensemble will showcase a dazzling "samulnori-style" piece. This ensemble performs mainly percussion-based music on the janggo (hourglass drum), buk (barrel drum), jing (large gong) and swe (small gong). Kwon is an assistant professor of ethnomusicology in the School of Music at UK.

 

Finally, the World Music Department will include, for the first time, the guitar talents of Andrew Rhinehart, and the acrobatics of the UK Capoeira Club performing the Brazilian martial art, capoeira.

 

The UK School of Music at the UK College of Fine Arts has achieved awards and national and international recognition for high-caliber education in opera, choral and instrumental music performance, as well as for music education, composition, theory and music history.
