Faculty Recital: Anthony Cincotta (saxophone)

When: Saturday, April 6, at 7 p.m.
Where: Concert Hall, Carter Center for Worship and Music

Prepare for an exciting evening of musical discovery at Bridgewater College. “Composers of Bridgewater College” is a unique project that celebrates the music Dr. Anthony Cincotta commissioned from the talented, vibrant, and diverse students studying music composition at Bridgewater College. The goal was to provide a platform for emerging young artists to share their work with a broader audience, showcasing the richness of creativity within our music community here at Bridgewater. Hannah Simmers’ (junior, music education) piece, “Solis,” and Charlie Hale’s (sophomore, music education) piece, “The Atlantic Combers,” will both receive their world premiere performances at this recital.

Not only will students collaborate with faculty on the performance of their compositions, but faculty members will also engage in collaborative efforts with each other. Cincotta will join forces with Dr. Christine Carrillo on trumpet, Amy Robertson on piano and the Bridgewater College Saxophone Quartet, and the audience will be treated to a special glimpse into the world of compositions by Assistant Professor of Music Dr. Ryan Keebaugh. Renowned for his expertise and passion, Keebaugh will present his latest work, “Kenosis,” a concerto for alto saxophone. The highly anticipated premiere of this work is a testament to the ongoing commitment of Bridgewater College to promote creativity and collaboration among its faculty and students.

As the notes fill the hall, the “Composers of Bridgewater College” becomes a shared experience, bridging the gap between composer and audience. Join us for an unforgettable evening of musical exploration, where the future of composition takes center stage, and the present moment resonates with the harmonies of Bridgewater’s diverse and dynamic musical landscape.
