TWU concert to benefit breast cancer research


DENTON — Beverly Hoch, adjunct assistant professor of voice in Texas Woman’s University’s School of the Arts, has drawn inspiration from above for her second annual fund-raising “Concert for the Cure.”

Titled “The Heavens Are Telling — Songs of the Sky,” the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12, in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on TWU’s Denton campus. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.

No admissions will be charged for the concert, but donations to the North Texas Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation will be accepted. The

North Texas Affiliate serves Denton, Collin and Grayson counties. For more information, visit www.komennorthtexas.org.

A total of $1,500 was raised during last year’s “Concert for the Cure,” but Ms. Hoch, a breast cancer survivor who will mark her fourth cancer-free anniversary in February, wants to surpass that amount with this concert. She will be joined in the concert by six Denton pianists — Gabriel Bita and his wife, Masako Narikawa, accompanists with TWU’s School of the Arts; Dr. Richard Shuster, assistant professor of piano at TWU; and current and former University of North Texas music faculty, Steven Harlos, Harold Heiberg and Jean Mainous.

Ms. Hoch, a soprano, will perform songs that celebrate the beauty of the skies. Other songs, however, speak to the storms that breast cancer survivors have experienced.

The concert, though, will end on a hopeful note, with spirituals by Uzee Brown Jr. Other composers include Haydn, Bach, Schubert, Barber, Gershwin and more.

“This is a concert of encouragement and joy,” Ms. Hoch said. “We all must keep looking up.”
