by Richard Veit
Renowned oboist Ray Still, who for many years served as principal oboist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and is now professor of oboe at Northwestern University, will present a series of four master classes at Baylor University during the weekend of Nov. 14-16. All events will take place in Recital Hall II, which is located within Waco Hall on the Baylor campus.
Still's appearance at Baylor University is made possible through the Lyceum Series, which is funded annually by the Meadows Foundation of Dallas.
Nine of the Baylor School of Music's instrumentalists-all of them students of Doris DeLoach, professor of oboe-will participate in the master classes and receive the insights of Still's decades of experience as a professional musician.
The classes will be presented on Friday, Nov. 14, from 7-10 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 15, from 9 a.m. to noon and 4-7 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 16, from 2- 5 p.m.
The Friday master class will include a performance by Ray Still and Brian Marks, lecturer in piano at Baylor. They will play Johann Sebastian Bach's Concerto in A Major, BWV 1055, as well as a set of sinfonias from Bach's Cantatas 12, 21, 156, and the Easter Oratorio.
All four master classes by Ray Still are free and open to the public. For more information, call the School of Music at 710-3991.
