ACTU to present chamber music concert on Sunday

Arts for the Community at Thomas University will present a chamber music concert for flute and clarinet as part of the Sundays at Four season on Sunday, Oct. 12, at 4 p.m. at Trinity Anglican Church, 325 W. Jackson Street. The concert will feature clarinetist Paul Vincent Petrucelli, flutist Karl Barton and pianist Katharine Gossman, along with a special solo appearance by award-winning high school flutist Stephen Barton.

“The repertoire for flute and clarinet includes a few gems that will be performed on Sunday,” series coordinator Dr. Karl Barton stated. “I am also proud to include my son on this program, who is a finalist for the North Florida Symphony Orchestra concerto competition later this month and will perform his competition piece with piano.”

Clarinetist Paul Vincent Petrucelli, a Seattle native and graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music, has been heard in many of the great performance spaces across the United States and has performed with the Chicago Civic Orchestra, the Chicago Chamber Orchestra and at the Chautauqua Music Festival.

Petrucelli is currently completing his doctoral degree in clarinet performance and has begun working closely with composers to broaden the prevalence of new works for the clarinet. His current project involves commissioning works for the basset clarinet from well-known composers, and the program Sunday will include selections from these new works by Teresa Martin and Peter Schickele (aka, PDQ Bach).

 “Our October concert always features some kind of chamber music, and the program will include solos and duos with piano and the kind of musical variety that will appeal to a wide audience,” Barton continued.

The program will also include works by Cavalli, Saint Saens, Edward Elgar, Ibert and Georges Hue. The concert is free and open to the public with a suggested donation of $5. A reception will follow the performance. For additional information visit thomasu.edu/actu or call (229) 227-6964.
