Black Hills State University will host a faculty-student concert entitled “Dynamic Duos” Sunday, Feb. 7 at 2:30 p.m. in the Clare and Josef Meier Recital Hall.

Music faculty members Jonathan Nero, assistant professor of music, baritone; Stephen Parker, associate professor emeritus of music, bass; Nancy Roberts, assistant professor of music, soprano; Christopher Hahn, instructor of music, trumpet; Randall Royer, professor of music, English Horn; and Janeen Larsen, professor of music, piano; will perform a wide variety of classical duets and trios with selected students.

Students participating in the concert include Mitch Austin Gillette, Wyo., string bass; Jesse Erickson, Yankton, bass; Casie Hardin, Spearfish, percussion; Jessica Finch, Rapid City, piano; Harumi Kobayashi, Spearfish, piano; Tyler Raad, Spearfish, tenor; Sean Sutton, Sioux Falls, tenor; Kim Ulmen, Kadoka, euphonium; Ashton VandenHoek, Jamestown, Mich., soprano; and Jamie Williams, Gillette, Wyo., soprano. Sandra Asheim and Lori Miller will also perform as accompanists.

“Although all the members of the BHSU faculty perform as soloists on faculty concerts, they decided that it would be interesting to have a special concert that focused on their mentoring activities with students. This will be an entertaining program with a wide variety of short selections,” noted Larsen.

The performance is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted for BHSU music scholarships. For more information contact Janeen Larsen at 642-6241 or Janeen.Larsen@BHSU.edu.
