Pellissippi State performance showcases talents of music faculty

Eighteen faculty at Pellissippi State Community College will show off their musical chops next week during a free performance that veers between Appalachian folksongs, Broadway show tunes, classical compositions and jazz.

Pellissippi State’s faculty recital will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in the Clayton Performing Arts Center on the college’s Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

The faculty recital, the latest installment in The Arts at Pellissippi State, is free and open to the public.

“There is a large variety of music scheduled and includes solo singers, solo and four-hands piano, and small instrumental ensembles,” explained Music Program Coordinator Peggy Hinkle. “You will hear everything from ‘Three Blind Mice’ to Debussy and even an original composition by David Slack, adjunct music faculty and director of the Studio Orchestra.”
