Pamela Decker, organist: The Secular, the Sacred, and the Spiritual @ University of Arizona Holsclaw Hall
Nov 7 @ 7:00 pm

In a concert co-sponsored by SAAGO, Professor Pamela Decker performs a faculty recital on the Schoenstein organ in Holsclaw Hall as part of the Roy A. Johnson Memorial Series.

Faculty artist Pamela Decker presents works by American composers of our time, along with one musical “ancestor”: Paul Hindemith, a German-born composer who emigrated to the United States in 1940 and taught at Yale University. Hindemith’s colorful Sonate III—both sacred and secular in orientation—will anchor a program that juxtaposes uninhibited riffs on African-American spirituals by Calvin Taylor with pieces that arise from Biblical texts, psalms, and liturgies from Tucson composer and organist Alan Schultz (Suite No. 2 for Organ) and Dr. Decker’s own Psalm 139. A centerpiece of the program will be a powerful toccata from the pen of celebrated American composer Joan Tower.
