Cumberlands Music Department Hosts Instrumental Faculty Recital


Williamsburg, Ky. – On Tuesday, March 27th, the University of the Cumberlands (UC) Music Department held their annual spring Instrumental Faculty Recital in the Nell Moore Recital Hall located on the UC campus.

The concert opened up with David Threlkeld accompanied by Kay Dawn McFarland performing Concerto for Alto Saxophone; movement # III entitled Lively by Charles Rochester Young.

“The reason we do this is for the students,” said David Threlkeld, Associate Professor of Music. “It’s one thing to teach the students in a classroom, but another to model for them.”

Others songs on the night ranged from Rhythm Strip by Askell Masson to Song of the Anvil by Jack Wilkins and Stolen Moments by Oliver Nelson.

The last piece performed on the night was the jaunty and catchy Black Bucket Stomp by the Faculty Jazz Ensemble. Members of the ensemble included Patrick Tuck on the trumpet, Steven Sudduth on trombone, David Threlkeld on tenor saxophone, Todd Spangler on piano, Russell Weedman on guitar, Joe Allen on bass, and Jim Corcoran on drums.

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; seven graduate degrees, including a doctorate and six master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
