First Performance in Reynolds Friday

The first performance in the newly completed Reynolds Recital Hall in C.B. Hedgcock will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28. Nancy Redfern (Music) and Barbara Rhyneer (Music) will perform on piano and violin, respectively. There is no admission charge.

Redfern will play “Pictures at an Exhibition” by Modest Musorgsky, and both will perform “Sonata in F major” by Edvard Grieg. The duo have had an opportunity to rehearse a few times in Reynolds Recital Hall in advance of their upcoming performance and offer nothing but praise for the new venue.

“We love it,” Rhyneer said. “It’s very exciting for us. It is acoustically sound and aesthetically beautiful. Having a quality facility really is a symbol of our validity as musicians. It is a tremendous asset for the music department.”

Redfern added: "I am ecstatic about the new hall. It is a pleasure to perform in such a beautiful place and I look forward to giving my students the opportunity to perform in a professional quality venue. Also, the newly rebuilt 9-foot Steinway grand piano is incredible and sounds fantastic in the hall."


The project was made possible in large part through a contribution from Phyllis Reynolds of Marquette, a longtime friend of NMU. A formal dedication is planned in April.
