3) “An Afternoon of Bassoon with Friends” At ASU on Oct. 25

What better way to spend an afternoon with friends and music than with Appalachian State University’s Hayes School of Music?”

An Oct. 25 recital in Broyhill Music Center’s Rosen Concert Hall features bassoonist Jon Beebe with flutist Nancy Schneeloch-Bingham, oboist Alicia Chapman, violinist Nancy Bargerstock, violist Eric Koontz, cellist Kenneth Lurie and pianist Junie Cho.

The performance begins at 4 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Billed as “An Afternoon of Bassoon with Friends,” the recital begins with Antonio Vivaldi’s “Chamber Concerto in G minor, RV 103,” followed by François Devienne’s “Quartet in C Major, Op. 73, No. 1.” Vivaldi, an Italina Baroque composer, wrote more than 500 concertos. “Concerto in G minor” was his only work composed solely for wind instruments. Devienne was a noted bassoonist and flutist in late 17th-century France. He composed nearly 300 works, primarily for wind instruments.

The program next moves to a more contemporary composition – “Duo Sephardim” by Philippe Hersant. A French composer, Hersant wrote his duo composition for bassoon and viola in 1993.

 Francis Poulenc’s “Trio for Piano, Oboe, and Bassoon” ends the recital. Poulenc was also a French composer who favored the woodwinds. His “Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano” composed in 1926 is considered a repertory classic.

4) Halloween Monster Concert at ASU on Oct. 31

What’s the source of your favorite fright? If you are a music lover, plan to attend the annual Halloween monster concert Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. at Appalachian State University. The concert in Hayes School of Music’s Rosen Concert Hall is free and open to the public and is presented by the school’s organ studio.

 The program of “fright music” includes Bach’s “Toccata in d minor,” which conjures images of a haunted mansion. Charles Ives’ variations on “America,” which is in keeping with a presidential candidates costume theme, William Albright’s “Totentanz” also known as “Jig for the Feet” as it is played solely on the foot pedals, and Lèon Boëllmann’s “Toccata” from his “Gothic Suite.”

 In addition, a silent movie will be shown to organ accompaniment and “pumpkin carols” will be sung. Costumes are welcome and free candy will be available at the end of the performance.

5) Alon Confino to Present “A World Without Jews” Presentation on Oct. 21 at ASU

Professor Alon Confino of Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel, and the University of Virginia will present the talk “A World Without Jews: The Nazi Imagination from Persecution to Genocide” Oct. 21 at Appalachian State University. His program will begin at 7 p.m. in Belk Library and Information Commons room 114. The lecture is free of charge.

Confino is one of the most innovative and vibrant scholars in the fields of modern German history, Holocaust and memory studies. Broadly interested in the theory and practice of writing history and a wide array of topics, ranging from memory and culture to nationhood and forced migration, Confino has been at the forefront of historical research for more than two decades.

Confino’s talk will be based on his latest work, “A World Without Jews” (Yale University Press 2014).  He begins his explorations with a simple question: Why did the Nazis burn the Hebrew Bible?  Confino portrays the widespread burning of the Hebrew Bible during Kristallnacht in November 1938 as an intentional and public act that constituted anything but an aberration. He argues that these practices of Nazis and other Germans should be seen as part of a large-scale project of “fixing the past” by ending the imagined Jewish “authority over a moral ancient past” and historical origins enshrined in the Bible. Steeped in histories of emotions and culture, Confino’s multifaceted answer amounts to an insightful rereading of key issues in the study of Nazism and the Holocaust.

Confino is the author of several key books and edited collections including, “The Nation as a Local Metaphor: Württemberg, Imperial Germany, and National Memory, 1871-1918” (University of North Carolina Press 1997) and “Germany As a Culture of Remembrance: Promises and Limits of Writing History” (University of North Carolina Press 2006). More recently, he has moved into the field of Holocaust studies, providing fresh insights as evidenced in his study “Foundational Pasts: The Holocaust As Historical Understanding” (Cambridge University Press 2012).

His presentation is presented by Appalachian’s Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies. Additional sponsors are the Department of History, Department of Philosophy and Religion, the Global Studies Program, Office of International Education and Development, the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, the Temple of the High Country, and Appalachian’s Hillel chapter.

 For more information, call the center at 828-262-2311 or email [email protected].
