Black Hills State University will be the venue for an early 1900s acoustic experience Sunday, Sept. 28 at 2:30 p.m. in Meier Recital Hall. A special program of American music from a century ago, most from authentic sheet music recovered from the historic Adams House Museum in Deadwood, will be performed by BHSU faculty and friends.
This will be the second performance of this music in recent years, following the highly regarded performance at the Adams House Museum last April.
Singers Susan Hove-Pabst, Jonathan Nero, and Dan O’Shea, accompanied by pianist Janeen Larsen, will perform a variety of songs popularized between 1890 and 1930. A Haydn trio will be performed by Larsen, cellist Elizabeth Benusis, and violinist Coral White. Music of this time period was commonly known as “parlor music” as it was performed by amateur musicians in most homes. The most important musical instrument in the home was considered the piano because it was useful as both a solo instrument and as accompaniment to a group of singers or instrumentalists.
There is no cost to attend this concert, and both students and the general public are welcome. For more information, contact Larsen at JaneenLarsen@BHSU.edu or call 642-6241.
