February 27…. William Westney in Concert: "Liszt/Gershwin Extravaganza" - Texas Tech's Browning Artist-in-Residence, pianist William Westney, is spending a substantial portion of the year in Denmark as the Hans Christian Andersen Guest Professor at the University of Southern Denmark. This residency has included concert performances in Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway, and he will play the same program for his annual solo faculty recital. The program highlights two virtuosic works, quite different in character. The "Mephisto Waltz" by Franz Liszt is a well-known and sensuous depiction of the Faust legend, complete with thundering octaves, sparkling runs, and rich melodies. The other large work on the program is more of a rarity, and this will be its Lubbock premiere. This is the "Fantasy on Porgy and Bess", a rich compendium of all the great tunes from the George Gershwin opera, woven together into a full pianistic tapestry by the arranger, pianist Earl Wild. There will be additional works by Haydn and Fauré. Admission is free. Hemmle Recital Hall, Music Building on the Texas Tech campus; 8 p.m.

March 2…. Pilobolus Dance Theatre - The Texas Tech Presidential Lecture & Performance Series continues its spring season with the world-renowned Pilobolus Dance Theatre. “Pilobolus will dazzle Lubbock audiences,” said Jo Moore, Presidential Lecture & Performance Series administrator. “Since its early years, Pilobolus has redefined dance and movement. To quote from a review from the Buffalo News, ‘To watch Pilobolus in action is to witness the kind of athleticism and choreography that broke ground for Cirque du Soleil.’ The dancers become an organic form unto themselves. Pilobolus’ grace, strength and humor shine through in their work.” Pilobolus began in 1971 as an outsider dance company, and quickly became distinguished for its imaginative and athletic exploration of creative collaboration. Today, Pilobolus is a new genre of dance in American dance theatre and has evolved into an American arts organization of the 21st century. Pilobolus performs for stage and television audiences all over the world and have made appearances on CBS’s 60 Minutes, the Academy Awards, the Oprah Winfrey Show and the Late Show with Conan O’Brien. Tickets for Pilobolus Dance Theatre are on sale for $12 at the Student Union ticket booth. Students are allowed one free ticket with a valid student ID. For more information contact Jo Moore at 742-0700. Allen Theatre, Student Union Building; 8 p.m.
