WCU presents ‘British Invasion’

Written by 

Western Carolina University School of Music will present “British Invasion,” an evening of 20th century music for clarinet and piano, at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 2, in the Coulter Building recital hall on the Western Carolina University campus.

Shannon Thompson, on clarinet, and Bradley Martin, on piano, will perform a sonata by Arnold Bax; Paul Reade’s “Suite from the Victorian Kitchen Garden,” a 1980s television series from the BBC2; Alec Templeton’s jazz-influenced “Pocket Size Sonata No. 1”; and Geoffrey Bush’s “Tributes” to musicians Artie Shaw, Darius Milhaud, Erik Satie, Harold Arlen and Joseph Horovitz. The program also will feature soprano Susan Belcher joining Thompson and Martin in “A Garden of Weeds” by Terence Greaves.

Thompson heads the clarinet studio at WCU and Martin teaches a variety of music courses. The duo has performed together in North Carolina, Tennessee and Oregon. They’re planning future concerts at the South Carolina Governor’s School and the University of North Carolina School for the Arts.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
