York College faculty ensemble to perform


The York Chamber Players, York College’s faculty ensemble in residence, will present a recital at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 23, in DeMeester Recital Hall, Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall. The event is open to the public free of charge.

The program will feature two masterpieces by American composer Aaron Copland: “Appalachian Spring,” in its original arrangement for a 13-instrument chamber ensemble; and the suite from the opera “The Tender Land,” in an arrangement by Murray Sidlin for the same ensemble. Conductor Zachary Levi will lead the ensemble, and vocalists Erin Lippard and Jeffrey Fahnestock will be featured soloists.

Most members of the York Chamber Players serve on the faculty at York College, and several teach at the York College Preparatory Community Music School.
