UNLV School of Music Professor and Students to perform at the Classical Music Festival Eisenstadt
UNLV bassoon professor Dr. Janis McKay is once again in Austria this summer, performing at the Classical Music Festival Eisenstadt with UNLV students Turner Norman, bassoon; Tobias Roth, viola; and Adam Stiber, cello. They will perform in a gala concert (Haydn's “Creation”) in the Schloss Esterhazy, where Haydn lived and worked for most of his life. In addition, they will present three different performances of the Beethoven Mass: One in the Vienna Stephansdom, one in the Eisenstadt Bergkirche (where Haydn is buried) and one in Mattersburg Austria. Students will hear several lectures from Haydn scholars, have a chance to view a number of original Haydn scores, and tour many places connected to Haydn and Liszt. All three are participating in chamber music groups as well. They are primarily learning classical music style and practice. They will be there through August 16. The Stephansdom performance will also be broadcast on Austrian radio.
