See Engineers in Concert on Saturday

TERRE HAUTE — Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology students and faculty members will showcase their many musical talents during the college’s annual Engineers in Concert on Saturday in the Hatfield Hall Theater.

This special concert gives Rose-Hulman students, faculty and staff members an opportunity to display their talents away from the classroom or laboratory, according to concert coordinator Bradley Burchett, associate professor of mechanical engineering. Performances were selected following campus auditions.

“Rose-Hulman is blessed to have students, faculty and staff with many talents and interests. This concert provides an excellent venue to display those talents to the campus and local community,” said Burchett.

The diverse musical program will have bagpipe musician J.P. Mellor, professor of computer science and software engineering; a bluegrass quartet featuring student Homa Hariri and faculty member Keith Hoover; and violinist Stephen Mayhew and pianist Heidi Yoder.

A quartet of student a cappella singers will perform a selection that features Taylor Swift’s “Mine,” Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and “Fix You” by Guy Berryman, Will Champion, Chris Martin and John Buckland.

Melissa Montgomery, a senior biomedical engineering major, will present her own song, “Unlucky Medley,” inspired by entertainer Victor Borge. Senior electrical engineering student Jordan Gameon will sing Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “Til I Hear You Sing.”

Brothers Robbie and Stephen Mayhew of Terre Haute will sing Simon & Garfunkel’s “59th Street Bridge Song” and “The Sound of Silence,” with guitarist Jaret May. Robbie is a sophomore mechanical engineering student while Stephen is a senior computer science major. May is a sophomore chemical engineering student from Jasonville.

Leo Delibes’ “The Flower Duet” will be sung by Kayla Greene, a junior physics major, and Elaine Schaudt, a junior civil engineering student. Burchett will provide piano accompaniment.

Three members of West Terre Haute’s Burchett family will also be featured in two segments of the concert, being accompanied by their father Brad Burchett. Lydia and Miriam Burchett will sing “Two Voices, One Song,” while Claudia Burchett will play the clarinet in a rendition of “Concerto for Clarinet in A major.”

The Rose-Hulman Jazz Band, directed by Norm Hanson, will kick off the concert by playing Calvin Custer’s arrangement of “Splanky,” Neil Hefri’s “Li’l Darlin’” and Michael Sweeney’s version of Herbie Hancock’s “Chameleon.”

Meanwhile, the concert band will close the St. Patrick’s Day show with Brian Balmages’ “Three Celtic Dances,” Percy Grainger’s “Irish Tune from Country Derry” and Rossano Galante’s “Resplendent Glory.” The group is directed by Julie Dugger.

Richard House, associate professor of English, will be the master of ceremonies for the concert. Randy Carle will be the show’s production manager.
