Talented Music and Art Students Team Up at Williams Recital Hall
April 8, 2013
For one entertaining evening in mid-April, Mississippi College’s Music Department and Art Department will combine their talents for a performance at the Jean Pittman Williams Recital Hall.
The April 16 presentation at 7:30 p.m. on the Clinton campus is free and open to the public. The program is dubbed “MC Creates.” This year’s theme is Wilhelm Muller’s 1820s poetic collection “The Fair Miller-Maid.”
Student and faculty composers penned music inspired by the poems. During that spring Tuesday evening at Aven Hall, MC graphic design students will interpret the poems in images viewed during musical performances by undergraduate and graduate student pianists.
Composition students who have studied under Mississippi College music professor Ben Williams of Clinton and student pianists from the studios of music professors Angela Willoughby and Michael Rushing will be featured on stage.
The program will also blend in the works of graphic design artists from the classes of MC art professors Benjamin Ivey and Kent Mummert.
