Jan. 27, 2005

Baylor University's Associate Professor of Flute Helen Ann Shanley will present a faculty recital at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 6, in Roxy Grove Hall. Joining her in the program will be Associate Professor of Viola Kathryn Steely, harpist Delaine Fedson, and pianist Doug Claybrook, senior lecturer in academic studies.

Shanley, who joined the Baylor music faculty in 1969, has performed as principal flutist with both the El Paso and Fort Worth Symphony Orchestras, and now serves in that same capacity with the Waco Symphony Orchestra. She holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at El Paso and a master's degree from the University of North Texas. She also has studied with the celebrated French flutist, Marcel Moyse.

Shanley's recital will open with the frequently performed 1987 Sonata of American composer and pianist Martin Amlin. Then she and Claybrook will play Peter Kolman's arrangement of four piano works by the great French master, Claude Debussy--the Prelude from his Suite Bergamasque, the Arabesque No. 1, and two familiar pieces from the Children's Corner Suite, "The Little Shepherd" and "Golliwogg's Cakewalk."

The program will conclude with 1991's Harbord Street, an engaging six-movement suite for flute, viola and harp by the late Canadian composer, Milton Barnes. Shanley will perform its first movement's challenging piccolo part.

The recital is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at (254) 710-3991.
