Day, Sorensen presents recital on two pianos during Sunday recital

The music department of Wayne State College will present pianists James Day and Arne Sorenson in a two-piano recital at 3:00 Sunday afternoon in Ramsey Theater.

The pianists have chosen three works for the program: Five Canaonic Etudes, Opus 56 by Schumann, arranged for two pianos by Claude Debussy; the Sonata in D Major for two pianos by W.A Mozart, and the famous "Carnival of Animals" by the French composer Saint Saens.

The public is invited to this program featuring two-piano performance, a combination which is very recent in concert history.

Professor Day, who has been on the music faculty of Wayne State College for over 10 years, studied with Ann St. John, Jan Chiapuso and famed Madame Rosina Lhevinne.

Sorenson, who teaches piano at the Christian College in Norfolk, studied piano with the late famous Chicago pianist Rudolph Ganz.

Assisting in the performance of "Carnival of Animals" will be Dr. Robert G. Johnson, Chairman of the communication arts department at Wayne State. He will narrate the work, reading verses by Ogden Nash.
