Attebery/Hunt Duo Add Next Generation to Annual Performance

2005. 05. 02.

Caldwell (ID) -- Barbara Attebery and Sylvia Hunt, the Attebery/Hunt Duo, are adding the next generation to their annual performance. The duo, along with Attebery's son Brian Attebery and Hunt's daughter Mary Macey, will perform in Jewett Auditorium on Sunday, May 15, at 2:00 p.m.

The performance is free and open to the public. Donations to the Richard D. Skyrm Scholarship at Albertson College will be accepted.

The program will feature Attebery's son, cellist Brian Attebery from Pocatello, and Hunt's daughter, soprano Mary Macey from Lewiston. Brian is playing 'Capriccio' by Lukas Foss and 'Vocalise' by Rachmaninoff. Mary Macey will sing an aria from 'Carmen' by Bizet and a selection from 'Showboat.'

'Since the duo has been performing almost annually since 1985, it seemed like a 'grand idea' to expand the program to include the talents of the next generation,' said Hunt.

The concert will also include selections Bach, Scarlatti, Franck, Leo Weiner, P.D.Q. Bach, and Frederick Fleming Beale.

Both Attebery and Hunt have been very active this year as accompanists for high school soloists and will be playing at St. Michael's Cathedral as part of the Noon Organ Recitals during Boise Music Week. They have also served for decades as organists at the First Methodist Church and Boone Memorial Presbyterian, respectively.
