The program will also include Tarantella, op. 13 by Josef Rheinberger, “España” by Emmanuel Chabrier and the Pavane, op. 50 by Gabriel Faure, arranged by faculty member Hancock.

“We chose music for this program that would be especially enjoyable, because the show will be recorded for broadcast on BYU Television,” said Shumway.
