Faculty Member to Provide Music for Gala Opening at Art Museum
Dr. Roger Latzgo, instructor of music at Penn State Lehigh Valley, will lend his talent to the gala opening of the "Monet to Matisse" exhibition at 6:00 p.m. on January 31, 2009, at the Allentown Art Museum.
Latzgo will add musical dimension to the festivities with his renditions of French repertoire played on the museum's Steinway piano. The music will span the later 19th and early 20th centuries, the period of activity of the featured artists, and include concert hall favorites by Bizet, Debussy, and Ravel, as well as music hall tangos, chansons, and waltzes.
The event is open to the public, but tickets are required. For more information, contact the Allentown Art Museum at (610) 432-4333.
