Serebryany, Herrick perform for Huntingdon concert series

Montgomery, Ala. — The Huntingdon College Faculty Recital Series will offer a performance by Dr. Dennis Herrick, trumpet, and Dr. Vadim Serebryany, piano, in a concert of "Stolen Music," Thursday, October 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the College's Ligon Chapel, Flowers Hall.  The program will feature works that have been adapted for performance on trumpet and piano, including a selection of songs from Georges Bizet's "Carmen" and Handel's operas, an aria by Giacomo Puccini, three arias written by Giuseppi Verdi, and a violin solo written by Franz Schubert. The concert is free and open to the public.

Herrick, a professor of music and member of the Huntingdon faculty since 1988, performs as principal trumpet with the Montgomery Symphony; first trumpet and founder of Capital City Brassworks; and first trumpet for Magnolia Brass; and has performed with Capitol Sounds Concert Band.  He studied at Eastman School of Music and North Texas State University. He retired from the Huntingdon full-time faculty earlier this year.

Serebryany joined the Huntingdon faculty in 2008 and has performed on national and international stages as a solo piano artist, with symphonies, and in chamber ensembles.  He holds degrees from the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto), the Juilliard School, and Yale University.
