Friday evening, Oct. 25, the Casper College RedStone Recital and Gallery Series presents a free evening of art and entertainment.

The series launches its seventh season with an evening of works inspired by Portugal and Spain. An artist’s reception will begin at 6:30 p.m. for an exhibition in the Mildred Zahradnicek Gallery featuring works created by Casper artist and CC art history travel course participant, Kathleen Wille. This mixed media installation emphasizes the importance of travel as an influence for visual storytellers, according to Eric Unruh, founder of the RedStone Recital and Gallery Series.

At 7:30 p.m., the music department faculty will present their seventh annual Faculty Musicale, spotlighting the music of the Iberian Peninsula in the Wheeler Concert Hall. Those performing include Unruh playing “Toccata in C” and “Cordova, Op. 232, No. 4” on the piano. Baritone Zachary Vreeman, choral instructor, will perform “Largo al factotum” from Rossini’s “Barber of Seville.” Vreeman will be joined by Paula Flynn, piano instructor.

Percussion instructor Ron Coulter will perform an original composition, “System No. 3 (Elaborations on Pendulum Music),” and will be followed by Flynn on piano who will play “Asturias, Op. 232, No. 1.”

Joshua Mietz, woodwinds instructor, will solo on two compositions: “Hommage a M. de Falla and “Folk Songs, Movement No. 5, Like a Flamenco dancer with St. Vitus Dance.” Nathan Baker, music theory coordinator, will perform “Radical Dreamers” from “Chrono Cross” on trombone.

The evening will conclude with soprano Veronica Turner, vocal instructor, singing two arias from “Carmen” with piano accompaniment by Flynn.

Both the Zahradnicek Gallery and Wheeler Concert Hall are located in the Music Building on the Casper College campus.
