Dedication ’72 was part of the Dedicatory Performance Series for the University of Florida Music Building. Dedication ’72 presents the musical compositions of Russell Danburg, a professor in the Department of Music. The concert was on Sunday, February 13, 2008 at the University Auditorium. Presented during the first part of the program are four instrumental works which Danburg composed at the request of students and faculty members. These compositions required anywhere from two to four instruments. The last number Chorale and Fugue for String Quartet and Four Dancers involved four musicians and a dance choreographed by Kim Tuttle for four dancers. After the intermission the first piece Beyond Time was composed expressly for the Dedication of the Music Building. The third and final work “Let Us Go Forth” is from the Heritage of Freedom (1961) in which Danburg set the Inaugural Address of President John F. Kennedy.
