Montana State University music professors Elizabeth Croy, soprano, and Julie Gosswiller, pianist, will perform in a recital of 20th century art songs at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at Reynolds Recital Hall.
The performance of the award-winning song recitalists will feature Francis Poulenc’s "Air Chantes," Samuel Barber’s "Three Songs (Op. 45)" and Alban Berg’s "Seven Early Songs (Op. 7)."
Croy and Gosswiller frequently collaborate as song recitalists. They were one of 10 teams chosen nationally to participate in the 2002 Art Song Festival at the Cleveland Institute of Music and won numerous awards in the first Internet art song contest, CyberSing.
Croy twice received national awards in the National Association of Teachers of Singing Artists Awards competition and was awarded a Montana Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship Award in 1999. She was one of six finalists in the 2004 American Traditions Competition in Savannah, Ga.
Tickets for the recital are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and are available at http://www.montana.edu/music/concerts/ or at the door. Reynolds Recital Hall is located in Howard Hall, across the street from the MSU Duck Pond.
