Flutist, pianist to perform classical music during SVSU recital

On Friday, Oct. 27, Saginaw Valley State University will showcase the talents of two musicians with experience performing in venues across the nation. The recital, taking place at 7:30 p.m. in the Rhea Miller Recital Hall, is free and open to the public.


The concert will feature flutist Townes Osborn Miller, associate professor of music at Mott Community College and a flute instructor at SVSU; and pianist Carl Angelo, director of music and fine arts at First Presbyterian Church in Flint and a former SVSU faculty member.


Miller is an active performer in the Flint and Saginaw areas while also making appearances with North Carolina's St. Matthias Chamber Orchestra, Tennessee's Oak Ridge Civic Music Association Guild and the Kansas City Flute Choir. She received her Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Kansas School of Music.


Angelo performed across the United States as both a soloist and a collaborative musician, served as the pianist for the Saginaw Choral Society, and conducted several clinics for the American Guild of Organists. He received his Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Indiana University.


The concert will feature selections from the 18th to the 20th century, including music by composers Franz Schubert, Claude Debussy, Paul Hindemith and Francis Poulenc.
