New art to be unveiled at TWU Flute Choir concert

3/31/06


 

DENTON — The artistry of music and images combine as the Texas Woman’s University Flute Choir performs Sonny Burnette’s “Stained Glass Images” in concert Monday, April 10.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Margo Jones Performance Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on TWU’s Denton campus. Admission is free. For more information, call (940) 898-2500.

Dr. Pamela Youngblood, associate professor of music at TWU and founder and director of the TWU Flute Choir, said the choir first performed “Stained Glass Images” 10 years ago, shortly after it was written. Dr. Youngblood said Dr. Burnette, currently the music department chair at Georgetown College in Kentucky, wrote the six-movement piece based on six pieces of stained glass art.

Now, his work is inspiring new art.

Images of six new stained glass designs created by Denton businesswoman Christie A. Wood, as well as images of the designs that inspired the music, will be projected onto a screen as the flute choir performs “Stained Glass Images.” Ms. Wood, owner of Art Glass Ensembles in Denton, is a community member of the TWU Flute Choir and a college friend of Dr. Youngblood’s. She said the idea to create new stained glass pieces came as the music was handed to her in rehearsal.

“I started scribbling (design) ideas on top of the music as we were playing,” she said.

Ms. Wood didn’t want to see the original images that influenced the music. “I just wanted the music to influence me,” she said. As a result, she said, “I’ll be just like the audience — I’ll see the originals when the audience sees them.”
