Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  MARQUETTE – The first performance in the newly completed Reynolds Recital Hall at Northern Michigan University will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 28. Music professors Nancy Redfern and Barbara Rhyneer will perform on piano and violin, respectively. The public is invited to attend this free event.

Redfern will play “Pictures at an Exhibition” by Modest Musorgsky, and both will perform “Sonata in F major” by Edvard Grieg. The faculty members have had an opportunity to rehearse a few times in Reynolds Recital Hall in advance of their upcoming performance.

Rhyneer offers nothing but praise for the new venue, which is located in the renovated C.B. Hedgcock building.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  “We love it,” Rhyneer said. “ItÂ’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.”

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The recital hall project was made possible in large part through a contribution from Phyllis Reynolds of Marquette, a longtime friend of NMU.

 Â Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚ Ã‚  The public is invited to attend this free event.
