Hayner hosts Chamber concert

GREENVILLE —The Troy-Hayner Cultural Center, 301 W. Main St., Troy, will host its Drawing Room Chamber Concert on Tuesday, March 28, 7:30 p.m.

The concert will feature a special program with Francis Laws at 7:30 p.m. Laws will explore the history of this unique instrument using several of the rarer versions of the euphonium such as the double bell euphonium from the late 1800s. He will also share with the nuances of the British Baritone. Laws will be performing several pieces arranged for these instruments such as Mozart’s Concerto No. 1 as well as modern composers such as Donald White, Stephen Bulla and Gardell Simons.

Joining Laws will be Amanda Roberts on the piano. Roberts is an active composer, arranger, and teacher and has also held collaborative piano posts with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Chorus and the Dayton Chamber Singers and was a member of COCOA (Composers of Ohio Collaborative Organization for Acoustic Music) in Dayton. She has appeared as a percussionist and pianist with several orchestras along with the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America and Band of Flight.

Since 1998 this intimate chamber series has been presented at the Hayner on the last Tuesday of most months in the school year. Beginning in 2017 we are pleased to have concert pianist Steven Aldredge as our host. Steven is also a sought-after composer and an educator at Wright State University. The series is presented free to the public through the generosity of the citizens of Troy and our loyal sponsors.
