French music program at UL tonight

by Mary Tutwiler

The music of French composers Ravel, Debussy, Chaminade and Chopin will fill the air this evening at Angelle Hall on the UL campus. Renowned pianist Emily Yap Chua will perform Debussy’s “Estampes, ” Ravel’s “Valses Nobles et Sentimentales, ” and the “Berceuse” and “Barcarolle” by Chopin among other works. “It’s all beautiful music,” says Dr. Chan Kiat Lim, keyboard professor in the UL School of Music. Lim and Chua are old college friends; they studied together at the College-Conservatory of Music at University of Cincinnati in 1997. Ten years later, Lim discovered his friend, a professor of music at Randolph College in Lynchburg, Va., was touring internationally, and he invited her to be a guest pianist at the university. Tomorrow morning, Chua will teach a master class from 10-11:30 a.m., open to the public, at Angelle Hall. Tonight, the program begins at 7:30 p.m., in the Ducrest-Gilfry Auditorium at Angell Hall. Admission is $10, $5 for students, or free with a UL ID.
