The final set of chapters of the performance and recitation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderful will be presented this Saturday, December 19, 2009, at 11:00 a..m. With an original score by Alec Wilder, the IUP Faculty Woodwind Quintet will play as Michael Hood, dean of the College of Fine Arts, recites and sings the final chapters of this Lewis Carroll classic.

The performance will be presented in the lower level of the Indiana Free Library, located along Philadelphia Street at Oakland Avenue.

Admission is free, but due to limited seating, the Indiana Free Library requests that seats be reserved in advance by calling 724-465-8841. The first two performances were technically “sold out.” However, there were several people that had reservations that could not attend, so seats did go empty. Therefore, those still wishing to see the performance are encouraged to call for seats and also show up for the performance should seats become available. It is also requested that only children over the age of five be brought to the performances.

The IUP project is led by John Kuehn, professor of music and coordinator of music education at IUP. The publishers of the music informed Kuehn that, to their knowledge, the presentation at the Indiana Free Library will be the first public performance of the complete work.
