Chamber music trio will perform

Tabor College will have a Faculty Chamber Recital, 4 p.m. Sunday at Parkview Mennonite Brethren Church, 610 S. Main St., Hillsboro.

The recital will feature violinist Adrienne Dougherty, cellist Susan Mayo, and pianist Sheila Litke.

“I enjoy doing the chamber music,” said Litke, associate professor of piano and piano pedagogy at Tabor College. “Each plays as a soloist, but must blend to make the sound of an ensemble. It’s a fun challenge in that regard.”

The trio will perform “Trio in C Major” by Franz Joseph Haydn, “Verano Proteño” by Ástor Piazzolla, and “Trio in D Minor” by Felix Mendelssohn.

Litke was the recipient of the Tabor College Distinguished Faculty Award in 2007-08, giving her more time for practice and performances in Hillsboro and throughout the Midwest.

Dougherty taught music for Wichita Public Schools for 32 years before retiring. She has been a member of the Wichita Symphony Orchestra and concertmaster for Music Theatre of Wichita for 40 years and concertmaster for the Newton Mid-Kansas Orchestra for 15 years.

Mayo teaches at Friends University and Emporia State University, as well as giving private instruction. She plays in the Wichita Symphony Orchestra and was awarded the 2007 Lois Gordon Cello Teacher of the Year award. Mayo has been a member of the KAC touring roster and the artist in residence program.
