“Music From the Heart” just in time for Valentine’s Day

Bethlehem, Pa., January 30, 2006—In an early celebration of Valentine’s Day, the Moravian College Music Institute will present “Two Part Invention & Friends – Music from the Heart,” on Sunday, February 12 at 4 p.m. in Peter Hall at Moravian College. Two Part Invention is comprised of guitarist John Arnold and flutist Nora Suggs, who will be joined by cellist Marie-Aline Cadieux and violist Adriana Linares.

The program includes such pieces as Molino’s “Nocturno,” Giuliani’s “Serenata, Op. 19,” Caluda’s “Regrets, Tears, & Blarney,” Leisner’s “Dances in the Madhouse,” Merlin’s “Progresiones para Pauline,” and Schubert’s “Quartet,” a piece written for flute, guitar, viola, and cello. All of the artists are members of Satori, a group dedicated to raising chamber music appreciation and awareness.

Arnold is an artist-lecturer in guitar at Moravian. He is involved with the Guitar and Flute and Guitar Ensembles as well as teaching guitar pedagogy, guitar literature, and private guitar lessons. He also plays with the Pennsylvania Symphonia Orchestra. He received the 2002 T. Edgar Shields Prize for distinguished studio instruction at Moravian College. Arnold is founder and director of the annual Bethlehem Guitar Festival.

Suggs, who holds a medical degree, is a Moravian College Music Institute artist-lecturer in flute. She plays with a variety of groups including a Celtic/rock band named Emerald City. Her career as a musician has taken her throughout the United States and to England, Canada, and Japan.

Originally from Caracas, Venezuela, Linares is a celebrated violist. She is an artist-lecturer in that instrument at Moravian College and also teaches at Kutztown University and the Doylestown Community Conservatory. She plays with a number of local ensembles, and will soon be part of the production of a CD of Hower Hanson’s works.

Cadieux has performed all over the world. She was the long-time principal cellist of both the Illinois Symphony and the Illinois Chamber Orchestra. Currently, she is an assistant professor of music at Kutztown University and a member of Duo Terlano, with which she performs and records.
