PORTALES – Eastern New Mexico University in Portales will host Trio Encantada in a chamber recital at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11 in Buchanan Hall of the Music Building.
The event is free and open to the public.
Trio Encantada, an ENMU faculty ensemble, features the combined talents of Tracy Carr, oboist; Jeanie Wozencraft-Ornellas, lyric soprano; and Mark Dal Porto, pianist and composer.
The event takes the audience through the process that a composer follows in writing a commissioned work.
Dal Porto will explain how he chose the poetry, developed the melodies and harmonies and worked with the performers to revise and rehearse a 40-minute piece, "Song of the Night," for the trio, which they will perform before taking audience questions and comments.
