Sweet Music

March 3rd, 2014

IU East has lots of talent among its faculty and on Thursday, March 6 you can enjoy a flute recital by music lecturer Jessica Raposo.  The presentation, at 7 pm in Vivian Auditorium, will include the world premier performance of a new piece of music composed by Nathaniel Akers, a graduate of IU East.  Also performing will be Barbara Armstrong on the piano, Stephen Nordstrom on violin, Kevin Nordstrom on viola, and Tanya Kholosho on cello.  They will play selections from Mozart, Bach, Hoover, Borne, and Hindemith.

And if that sounds good to you, the library has more!  A guide to all of our music resources can be found here – of particular note is the Naxos Music Library, which includes over a million tracks of streaming music from 90,000 CDs.  You can search by composer, artist, or type of music, and assemble and save your own playlists – even listen to dozens of flute recitals like these.

Working in concert with that is our book collection, which includes numerous music books, including flute-oriented titles like Simple Flute: From A to Z by Michel Debost, Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”: Opera Classics Library Series by Burton Fisher, and biographies like Monarch of the Flute: The Life of Georges Barrere by Nancy Toff.  Add to that databases like Oxford Music Online, and you have resources up to your ears!
