(Nov. 11, 2011) -- The UTSA Department of Music will host a faculty recital and musical concert at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 14 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus. Admission is free and open to the public. The event will feature songs from Elizabethan England, Brazil and France as well as jazz and pop classics.
Scheduled performers include UTSA Department of Music faculty members Linda Poetschke and Matthew Dunne. Following the recital, Dunne will perform as a member of The Accidental Trio, comprised of vocalist Joan Carroll and accordionist Mark Rubinstein.
The Accidental Trio derived their name after forming spontaneously at the Instituto de Mexico when other members of a jazz combo failed to show up for a concert. Their musical sound is a more intimate folksy sound achieved by a combination of acoustic guitar, accordion and subtle vocals.
Poetschke joined UTSA in 1984 and has chaired the department's voice area since 1989. She is a frequent recitalist on university campuses and has performed professional concerts in Switzerland, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and the Czech Republic.
Guitarist and composer Matthew Dunne has been with UTSA since 1992 and directs the guitar and music marketing programs. He has taught throughout the United States and Mexico in both classical and jazz genres.
Dunne has collaborated frequently with the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet including compositions on their Grammy Award winning CD "Guitar Heroes." In 2008, he was the winner of the Tobin Grand Prize for Artistic Excellence from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio.
Joan Carroll has sung professionally for more than 25 years as an accomplished jazz vocalist and is well known for her sensitive phrasing, intonation and comprehensive knowledge of the jazz repertoire. She hosts a radio show, "The Jazz Voice," on KRTU FM 91.7 at 11 a.m. Saturdays.
Mark Rubinstein has cultivated a career combining his interests as a performing accordionist, record producer, record engineer and educator. He has performed all over the world in a variety of musical settings from avant-garde theater pieces to symphony orchestras. His work as a recording engineer and producer has contributed to platinum records, Grammy nominations and No. 1 Billboard records for his clients. Currently, he oversees recording activities at The Ohio State University and teaches audio recording classes while collaborating with faculty on recording and research projects.
