The next guest recital on Baylor University's Lyceum Series will feature saxophonist Donald Sinta and pianist Kathryn Goodson at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 17, in Jones Concert Hall. This recital titled, "Deep Flowers--a Cultural Journey," is presented in conjunction with the North American Saxophone Alliance's Region IV conference, hosted by Baylor. Lyceum Series events are funded annually through the generosity of the Meadows Foundation of Dallas.

The program will open with Chinese composer Pei Lu's Yun Shen Tsu, which describes a small village in the mountains of southern China. Its movements are "Ancient Theater," "Love Song--Under Full Moon," "Three Dogs" and "Dance of the Lion."

That will be followed by another work from 1999, Stephan M. Gryc's Three Small Resonant Pieces and Takashi Yoshimatsu's Fuzzy Bird Sonata from 1995.

After intermission, Sinta and Goodson will perform the recital's title piece, Deep Flowers, composed in 1992 by Evan Chambers.

The remainder of the program will consist of music by two Argentinian composers. Sinta and Goodson will play six of the Twelve American Preludes of Alberto Ginastera and History of the Tango by Astor Piazzolla.

A former member of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Sinta is on the music faculty of the University of Michigan. Goodson performs regularly in Germany, Switzerland and the United States.

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