Hale Library Concert Series celebrates pioneering composer Amy Cheney Beach

By Sarah McGreer Hoyt

Amy Cheney Beach

The Hale Library Concert Series kicks off Jan. 27 with a tribute to Amy Cheney Beach, 1867-1944, America's first great female composer. K-State's School of Music, Theatre, and Dance faculty and staff members Amy Rosine, soprano; Amanda Arrington, piano; and Karen Large, flute, will perform in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Beach's birth. The concert will feature some of her best-loved songs, piano pieces and chamber music performances.

Presented by the Friends of the K-State Libraries, all Hale Library Concert Series events begin at 7:30 p.m. on Hale Library's fifth floor and include a wine and dessert reception.

Concert tickets are $30 for individuals, $10 for students. To purchase a ticket, visit lib.k-state.edu/events.

The remaining events in this season's series include an encore performance by Slawomir Dobrzanski, piano, and Ben Sayevich, violin, on April 28, and Jazz in June on June 9.
