Eponymous 3 to Give Concert at Wabashby Karen Handley • August 22, 2005
Crawfordsville, IN — Diane Maximovich Norton, Amanda Ingram, and Matt Bentley make up the group, Eponymous 3, and will present an afternoon of music on Sunday, August 28, in Wabash College’s Salter Hall in the Fine Arts Center. The concert begins at 4 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
The Eponymous 3 have been playing together since Ingram and Bentley arrived on campus last fall after discovering that the three of them all love early music. They performed together at the Wabash College Spotlight Concert last April and have performed at local functions. Their program consists primarily of works for recorder, cello, and harpsichord, written in France, Italy, Germany, and England during the early 18th century. In contrast, they will also perform three works from the early 20th century at Sunday’s concert.
The afternoon concert will include works by composers Anne-Danican Philidor, Georg Philipp Telemann, Antonio Vivaldi, George Frideric Handel, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Hans Martin Lind, Arvo Part, and Jacques Morel
Norton is an instructor of piano in the Wabash Music Department, and music and circulation librarian for Lilly Library. She received an M.M. and completed her doctoral studies in music history and literature at Northwestern University, and earned her M.L.S. at Indiana University. Norton has been active in the Wabash College Music Department for over three decades as both pianist and harpsichordist. She has performed in recital with members of the faculty and the student body, and has given world premieres of compositions written for her by such composers as Fredric Enenbach, Bernard Schulz, and Judd Danby.
Ingram is an assistant professor of biology at Wabash. She began playing the alto recorder while an undergraduate at the College of William and Mary, took a hiatus during her graduate studies at Cornell University, but happily returned to the instrument upon her arrival at Wabash last fall. In Sunday’s performance, she will play two different alto recorders. One is tuned to modern pitch, and the other represents a more typical Baroque tuning.
Bentley is an assistant professor of Spanish at Wabash. He picked up the cello in fourth grade and has played with the Logan High School Symphony, the Rocky Mountain Youth Camerata, and the Charlottesville and University Symphony Orchestra at the University of Virginia. An amateur at heart, he enjoys playing string quartets weekly with a group of Wabash faculty and staff.
