Faculty members to honor composer through performance

Nov 10, 2010 | General News, Liberal Arts

A Louisiana Tech performance featuring two faculty members will present the music of American composer George Gershwin.
Stan Napper, dean of the College of Engineering and Science, will play the piano, and Lawrence Gibbs, an associate professor of music, will alternate between playing the clarinet and the saxophone.
The program, “After you, Mr. Gershwin,” will feature the great melodies of the American composer.
Selections to be featured are the three preludes, which are arranged for clarinet and piano:  “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” from the opera “Porgy and Bess,” and “Andante and Finale,” from the musical composition “Rhapsody in Blue,” among many others.
The program will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 6 in the rotunda of the Biomedical Engineering Building.
