School of Music to host guitar duo

-

Each Tuesday, the campus community has the opportunity to hear students and faculty in the School of Music perform at the Presidential Brown Bag series.

Jason Bergman, assistant professor of trumpet and coordinator of the Brown Bag series said is a way to get the School of Music noticed by a broader population on campus.

“The casual setting and location make it a perfect option for people on the go,” Bergman said.

“The series showcases the talented students and faculty that we have on campus.”

The final fall performance will be Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 12:15 p.m. The Belletones, an all women’s a cappella group will also perform in the Thad Cochran Center.

“The Belletones are a thrilling ensemble to hear live,” said Bergman. “The audience is sure to enjoy their exciting music.”

The Southern Miss Guitar Studio performed Nov. 5.

“Our guitar studio is one of the best in the country,” Bergman said. “Dr. Ciraldo is a fantastic professor and has created a wonderful classical guitar program at USM.”

The 2013 Mississippi Guitar Festival is taking place at The University of Southern Mississippi this year.

Classical guitar students, teachers and fans will benefit from lectures, master classes, competitions and guest recitals during the festival.

Events will begin on Friday, Nov. 8 at 8:00 a.m. and will end on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 9:00 p.m. with an awards ceremony.

This year’s guest artist will be The Newman and Oltman Guitar Duo. They will perform at Oddfellows Gallery in downtown Hattiesburg on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

Newman and Oltman are world-renowned artists, who have performed in the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, South Africa, Canada, the Caribbean and the South Pacific. They have performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall and The Queen Elizabeth II.
