Mystery in Melody – October 14th, 2018

As the leaves are starting to change and nights are getting longer, 4th Wall Music presented ‘Mystery in Melody’. Music included movements from Mussorgsky’s “Pictures of an Exhibition”, “Goblin”, “Catacombs”, and “Baba-Yaga” performed by Detroit Symphony pianist, Rob Conway. The rich baritone voice of Wayne State instructor Jonathan Lasch joined Conway, performing the dark music of Franz Schubert (Death of the Maiden, The Crow and The Phantom Double). A string quartet from the WSO (Andrew Wu – Violin, Xie Min – Violin, Roman Kosarev – Viola and Andrew McIntosh – Cello) performed spooky and challenging music by the Hungarian composer, Bella Bartok. Dr. Andre Narbonne, University of Windsor professor, read Edgar Allan Poe’s “Masque of the Red Death” while the string quartet and Amy Ley, harp, performed music of the same name by Andre Caplet. While some of the music was going on, Funky Faces did some ghoulish face painting and art by students of Walkerville Collegiate was shown. As always, Little Ones in the Lobby did an awesome craft with the children!
