Ceruti Players to Give Recital of Chamber Music Feb. 12

Lindsey Wilson College has a special treat for music lovers on Friday, Feb. 12. The college will host a recital by the Ceruti Chamber Players of Louisville, Ky., at 7 p.m. CT Friday, Feb. 12, in the W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall, 151 Blue Raider Drive. The concert is free and open to the public.

The Feb. 12 recital will feature music by 19th, 20th and 21st century composers. The program includes well-known pieces by Robert Schumann and Georges Bizet, as well as more recent compositions by modern composers Tim Goplerud and Claude Bolling.

"We'll play various combinations of chamber music, some of it will be with and without piano," said Grace Baugh-Bennett, who plays the piano in the group. "We will perform pieces that will give the audience a great variety of music that have different combinations of instruments."

Baugh-Bennett said the program for the Feb. 12 recital will offer music that will appeal to both lovers of classical music as well as newcomers.

"We try to let everyone have fun -- not just us," she said. "The last thing we try to be is intimidating. ... It's a very, very listenable program with a quite a bit of diversity in the styles. There's something in it for everyone."

The Ceruti Chamber Players -- which were established more than 25 years ago and named after a famous 18th-century Italian violin player -- are no strangers to Southcentral Kentucky. The group has performed several times at Lindsey Wilson, and some of the group's players have also performed with Lindsey Wilson's choral groups.

"The car almost knows its own way (to Columbia). You just say, 'Go to Columbia,' and it goes," said Robert Docs, who plays double bass in the group. "The community is very nice, the students are great, the people from around town who come to hear us are great. ... I look forward to it all the time."

Added Baugh-Bennett: "It's a wonderful atmosphere. It's just an all-round wonderful atmosphere. The connection is special."

The Ceruti Players of Louisville, Ky., will perform at 7 p.m. CT Friday, Feb. 12, at W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall, 151 Blue Raider Drive. For more information, contact Director of Library Services Phil Hanna at or 270-384-8250.
