A group of faculty from the University of Tampa (UT) music department as well as talented guests will host a recital at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 17, opening the free event to students and the public.
Theresa Cincione (soprano) and Elisabet Fandino (pianist) will join music faculty Aric Brian (trumpet) and Grigorios Zamparas (piano) at the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values.
The recital features pieces from three recitals that the group performed earlier this summer. Their original performances were at the 28th annual Portoheli Festival Supporting Culture and the Arts which was held in Portoheli, Greece.
This new program will include a Baroque set from composers like Handel, Torelli and Scarletti. The Spanish set will feature famous names such as Turina, Piazzola and Lecuona. Famous classical Italian arias, a contemporary piece from Canadian composer Peter Tiefenbach, and jazz compositions from Ellington and Gerschwin will also take the stage on Oct. 17.
The musicians giving the performance are talented and qualified for the recital; since 1991, Cincione has sung major parts at New York’s Metropolitan Opera, Fandino has a degree in music and is a member of the National Piano Guild and the Music Teachers National Association, Zamparas is a music professor and soloist, and Brian performs with the Florida Orchestra, Sarasota Opera, Sarasota Orchestra, Opera Tampa, Braodway tours and other shows on a regular basis.
