EMMF Brings the House Down!

There's nothing better than a live, world-class concert!

 

by John Vogt - August 1, 2016

Recordings are wonderful but nothing compares to the full, rich, audio and visual expression of live music. EMMF Conductor and Music Director Stephen Gunzenhauser applauded the audience after Friday evening’s performance. He said that the audience was feeding back into the energy of the orchestra. This is one of the components that makes the live experience unique and unforgettable. There is so much more energy than you can ever experience listing to a recording. If you have not yet attended a live Endless Mountain Music Festival concert we encourage you to do so. You will not be disappointed. There is nothing like live!

Friday’s evenings concert was sponsored by Citizen’s and Northern Bank, and opened with the Mansfield University Choral Camp under direction and conduction of Peggy Dettwiler. Her official Mansfield University Biography states that Peggy D. Dettwiler, DMA – is Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities at Mansfield University in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, where she conducts the Concert Choir, Festival Chorus, and Chamber Singers, and teaches choral conducting and methods. Before coming to Mansfield, she was a graduate assistant conductor to Donald Neuen at the Eastman School of Music, where she received a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in Conducting. She also has a Master of Music Degree in Choral Conducting from the University of Texas at San Antonio and a Master of Music Degree in Music Education from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Peggy Dettwiler is a special treasure and we are sure that Mansfield University is very grateful to have her as part of their staff. The Choral Camp performance of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy in C minor for Piano, Chorus and Orchestra was amazing.

Conducting intern, Nathan Dawkins, delighted the Steadman Theatre Audience with Prelude to Act III of the Opera Lohengrin by Richard Wagner. Stephen Gunzenhauser is mentoring Nathan. EMMF Executive Director Cynthia Long stated that Nathan Dawkins is a wonderful young man with great talent and a promising future.

Then the Endless Mountain Music Festival Orchestra under conduction of Stephen Gunzenhauser, presented Chopin’s Piano Concerto #2 in F Minor, featuring Asiya Korepanova on the piano and then Behtoven’s 7th. Once again the Endless Mountain Music Festival Orchestra brought the house down with these stunning performances.

Rita Dibble, VP for Advancement at Mansfield University said that the concert was spectacular. Rita is very pleased that Mansfield University is able to host part of the Endless Mountain Music Festival. She said that it is a way for MU to be able to showcase their students and show them what they can become. Rita also talked about this year’s choral camp and what this relationship means to the students who participated. Endless Mountain Music Festival President, Tabitha Dietrich, added to Rita’s enthusiasm for the student program stating that the beauty of this partnership is that they are growing and advancing together, trying new things, seeing what works, and tweaking it to get the best possible experience for the participating students.

Toward the end of today’s broadcast EMMF Executive Director Cynthia Long talks about upcoming concert events. Remember, there’s nothing like live! So, grab your calendar and your phone and get ready to save the dates and times. You can also find the remainder of this year’s EMMF concert schedule along with ticket information at endlessmountain.net or call (570) 787-7800.
