SAN LUIS OBISPO - Cal Poly Music Department faculty members will present a recital titled "Railroads and Cabaret" at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 22, in Room 218 of the Davidson Music Center (Bldg. 45) on campus.

Katherine Arthur (soprano) and Susan Azaret Davies (piano) will perform an afternoon of 20th century song, including works by Krenek and Schoenberg.

The program will begin with Ernst Krenek's "The Ballad of the Railroads", an autobiographical journey. This piece will be accompanied with archive railroad projections provided by Curtis Reinhardt (Central Coast Railroad Festival). The program will end with Schoenbergs charming and naughty "Brettl Lieder" (Cabaret Songs), which he composed in Berlin in the beginning of the 20th century. Admission at the door is $3.

The concert is sponsored by Cal Poly's Music Department and College of Liberal Arts. For more information, call the Music Department at (805) 756-2406.
