Summary: Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bring together the historical figures of the four successful assassins of U.S. presidents and five more who attempted to assassinate a president. In a thoughtful, provoking, and often funny ninety-minute musical, Sondheim and Weidman muse on American rights and freedoms and how these assassins felt they were denied rights and turned those feelings violently toward a national stage. The show also demonstrates how America’s violent criminals study and copycat earlier crimes, especially in shootings, and prefer notoriety to invisibility, as the nine assassins interact in the fictional stage space.

Cast: Will Snyder as John Wilkes Booth; Patrick Jones as Charles Guiteau; Rocky Nardone as Leon Czolgosz; Jacob Anspach as Giuseppe Zangara; Brett Hammes as Lee Harvey Oswald and Balladeer; Josh DeBell as Sam Byck; Annie Levine as Squeaky Froome; Kelsey Roberts as Sarah Jane Moore; Ben Bernstein as John Hinckley; Tristan Strasser as Proprietor; Kat Berton as Emma Goldman and others; Carl Treiber as David Herold and others; Mick Elliott as Billy Moore and others; and Sydney Lyons as Housewife and others.

SUNY Geneseo Wind Quintet @ Doty Recital Hall
Feb 9 @ 3:00 pm

Join the Geneseo Wind Quintet on Sunday, February 9th at 3:00 pm in Doty Recital Hall for our spring concert featuring an airy and animated keyboard music program! Colorful transcriptions for the core woodwind quintet members of keyboard works by Bach and Beethoven will precede Poulenc’s tour de force, Sextour, featuring SUNY Geneseo Instrumental Collaborative Pianist, Kurt Galvan.

Enamored with the remarkable instrumental concertos of Antonio Vivaldi, J.S. Bach absorbed the essence of Vivaldi’s clever melodic shaping and confident contrasts between tutti and solo sections as he delved into his own adaptations of the very same music he revered. Bach’s Concerto for Organ No. 2 in A minor, BWV 394, is an adaptation of Vivaldi’s famous Concerto for Two Violins in A minor, RV 522, No. 8, and the Geneseo Wind Quintet lends its colorful timbres to one more degree of transformation, in Mordechai Rechtman’s arrangement of Bach’s work. Felix Skowronek’s transcription of L. van Beethoven’s cheery Pieces for Mechanical Organ for wind quintet, creatively displays the clock-like time and colors of characteristic wooden and metal pipes associated with the 18th century mechanical instrument. To close the program, pianist Kurt Galvan will join the quintet members for a rousing performance of a piece composed in 1931 and continually revised for a decade during a period of wartime anguish, Poulenc’s Sextour.

The Wind Quintet members: Andrew Brown, clarinet; Megan Kyle, oboe; Maura McCune Corvington, horn; Martha Sholl, bassoon; Kathryn Scarbrough flute

Admission is free / all are welcome.
