Lewis, Rosfeld, and Betts to perform in Faculty Recital

The SNU School of Music proudly presents a faculty recital featuring Melissa Lewis, viola; Kim Rosfeld, soprano; and Steve Betts, piano, Friday, September 26 at 7:30 p.m. in Cantrell Hall, located just north of 39th and College on the campus of Southern Nazarene University.

Lewis, Rosfeld, and Betts will perform pieces in a wide variety of musical styles, sounds and textures, including selections by Bach, Bernstein, Clarke, Argento, and Hindemith. The group will also present a sacred work composed by John Rosfeld, SNU Professor Emeriti.

“We decided to do this recital together for many reasons – the main reason is that we love music and love to perform!” said Lewis, “It’s important for us to continually refine our skills, and this also helps us identify with the students who go through this process each semester.”
