Pianist and Cal Poly Music Department Chair W. Terrence Spiller will give a benefit recital at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13, in the Spanos Theatre on campus.
The first half of Spiller’s program contains a pair of traditional Austrian masterworks: W.A. Mozart’s Sonata in D Major, K. 311, and Franz Schubert’s monumental “Impromptus,” Op. 90.
The second half of the program explores romantic and impressionistic color with Louis Moreau Gottschalk’s “Souvenir of Puerto Rico,” Claude Debussy’s set of three pieces, “Images, Book I,” and Mily Balakirev’s notorious and compelling “Islamey.”
Tickets are $14 for the public and $9 for students. Proceeds will benefit the Cal Poly Music Department Scholarship Fund. Tickets are available at the Cal Poly Ticket Office between noon and 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. To order by phone, call SLO-4TIX (756-4849).

The concert is sponsored by the Cal Poly College of Liberal Arts and Music Department. For more information, call the Music Department at 805-756-2406 or visit its calendar website.
