UW Faculty Recital Series Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Berlin Wall’s Fall
A concert to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall is scheduled Sunday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts concert hall at the University of Wyoming. The concert is free and open to the public.
UW Department of Music Professor John Fadial, violin, and guest pianist Andrew Harley perform as part of the department’s Faculty Recital Series. The concert is in collaboration with the “Fall of the Wall,” a weeklong celebration headed by Stephanie Anderson, an associate professor in the UW Departments of Women’s Studies and Sociology.
The concert takes place on the anniversary of the actual day in 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down.
Featured music will be from Soviet Russian composer Alfred Schnittke, who died in 1998, and the German master of the 19th century, Johannes Brahms (1833-1897).
Harley, an English pianist, has taught and performed in the U.S. and abroad. He served on the faculty of University of North Carolina-Greensboro and currently teaches at the Levine School of Music in Washington, D.C.
Fadial has been at UW since 2008. He received a B.M. (1987) from North Carolina, an M.M. (1989) from the Eastman School of Music, and a D.M.A. (1995) in violin performance from the University of Maryland-College Park.
