Thomas Schuttenhelm Selected to Perform at International Guitar Research Centre Symposium

On March 29th 2014, Thomas Schuttenhelm (DMA '01) and soprano Sarah Hersh-Armstrong will perform a recital of American Art Song and Song Cycles (for voice and guitar) at the inaugural symposium of the International Guitar Research Centre in Surrey [just outside of London proper] (UK).

The recital will feature all Hartt composers.  The program includes An Infant Crying by Larry Alan Smith (Hartt faculty), Time in Eternity by Tony Solitro (Hartt alumnus), When I Shut My Eyes by Ken Steen (Hartt faculty), and two of Schuttenhelm's song cycles: One Look Too Close and Tres Canciónes Españolas (text by Cuban-American poet and artist Rafael Oses, a Hartford Art School alumnus).

This is a prestigious event featuring the top performers from around the world.  Thomas and Sarah want all to know that they are proud to represent the Hartt School and its tradition of combining composition with contemporary performance practice.
