Geoffrey Kidde, D.M.A., Associate Professor, Music presents "The Machine Stops: A work in progress"

Wednesday, October 26th, at 4:30 p.m. in the Library's Current Periodicals Room
Prof. Geoffrey Kidde will outline the progress of his second opera, The Machine Stops, giving an account of the narrative and musical aspects of the project. Having organized a public reading (funded by a Manhattanville College faculty research grant) this past summer, Prof. Kidde will play recorded excerpts from the opera. As a bonus, a trio from the first act will be performed live by students and faculty. This special musical presentation will preview the senior recitals of three music theater majors: Chelsey Jensen, Jenna Griffin, and Sarah Morris, under the musical direction of Prof. Mark Cherry.
