The public is invited to attend the first in Catawba College' Tuesday Music 515 performances for the spring semester at 5:15 p.m. on February 14, 2006 in the Omwake Dearborn Chapel on campus.

Catawba alumnus Ralph Hair will present a program of beautiful music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart which has been transcribed for euphonium with piano accompaniment. This year marks the 250th birthday of Mozart, and two of the spring’s 515 performances will feature tributes to this great composer.

Two other performances are scheduled this spring.  On March 14, "The Ives of March," a program of music by American composer Charles Ives, will feature local organist Adam Ward and the Catawba College Student Wind Ensemble, directed by Dr. Steve Etters of the Catawba Music Department. The final performance of the spring will be a tribute to Mozart in his 250th anniversary year on April 11, featuring members of the Catawba Department of Music and the Catawba Brass. It will include music for piano, for brass ensemble, and for French horn with piano accompaniment.

The Tuesday Music 515 Series is sponsored by the Catawba Music Department, with Rosemary Kinard serving as program coordinator. It is a concert series spotlighting area musicians in brief programs on the second Tuesday of the month, beginning at 5:15 p.m. and lasting for approximately 30 minutes. 

All performances are free and open to the public.
