ACU to serve as host for University of North Texas music group


For Immediate Release
Nov. 8, 1999

A group from the College of Music at the University of North Texas will perform at Abilene Christian University on Friday, Nov. 12, at 8 p.m. at the Chapel on the Hill adjacent to ACU's College of Biblical Studies building.

The concert is a performance by the early music ensemble, Les Agréments. The group consists of a violin, lute, harpsichord and violoncello. The group will perform on authentic period instruments and will feature the music of Uccellini, Marini, Buxtehude, Muffat and Biber.

Les Agréments will perform from facsimile editions of the original manuscripts whenever possible in order to express the composer's intents and to perform authentically.

Gregory Straughn, a graduate of the ACU Music Department, will play the violoncello part in the concert. He is married to Marcia Rives Straughn, also an ACU music graduate.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
