The afternoon of chamber music will feature students from Bowling Green State University’s College of Musical Arts. Students performing have been recipients of travel grants funded through Pro Musica at the college.

The program will include: “Clapping Music” by Steve Reich and “Opening” by Philip Glass, performed by percussionist Nicolas Fox, a doctoral student majoring in performance from River Falls, Wis.; the “Piano Sonata No. 4 in F-sharp Major” by Alexander Scriabin and the first movement of Beethoven’s “Piano Sonata No. 26 in E-flat Major,” performed by Yangmingting Fang, a graduate student in piano performance from China; and “Duo II” by Saverio Mercadante and “Suite Provençale” by Daniel Schnyder, performed by flutists Taylor Francis and Aldulfulyne Padmore. Both Francis, a sophomore from Murphy, Texas, and Padmore, a graduate student from East Orange, N.J., are majoring in flute performance.

For more than 30 years Pro Musica, funded by nearly 250 dedicated alumni, friends, parents and members of the Bowling Green community, has sponsored a wide variety of musical events and provided financial support to music students for educational travel projects. In addition, the organization provides funding for scholarships and various awards at the college.
