Soprano Carol Dusdieker, who joined the Heidelberg University faculty full time this year, is to perform a recital, "Portraits of Love," at 7 p.m. Saturday in Ohl Concert Hall on campus.
Accompanying her will be Thaddeus Archer on trumpet and I-Chen Yeh on piano.
Dusdieker said the recital is to take the audience on a journey through the joys and trials of courtship with pieces by composers Alessandro Scarlatti, Luigi Arditi, Edvard Grieg, Hugo Wolf and Amy Beach.
An assistant professor of voice at Heidelberg, Dusdieker received doctorate and master's degrees from Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. She has performed with operas and symphonies around the United States, including Cleveland, Des Moines, Cincinnati and Toledo. She also performs annually in the Heidelberg New Music Festival.
Saturday's recital is free.
