Three members of the Baylor University woodwind faculty will perform at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 6, in Roxy Grove Hall.

Also appearing will be harpsichordist Doug Claybrook, senior lecturer in academic studies, and Brian Marks, assistant professor of piano.

The program will open with François Couperin's seven-movement Concert Royal No. 4 in E minor, followed by the Oboe Concerto No. 1 of 1918 by Dutch composer Julius Röntgen, co-founder of the Amsterdam Conservatory. Also to be heard will be Brazilian composer Camargo Mozart Guarnieri's Flute Sonata, which dates from 1947.

After intermission, there will be music for oboe and piano by former Baylor composition professor Richard Willis.

The program will close with the Clarinet Sonata of Italian composer Nino Rota, best known for film scores La dolce vita and Romeo and Juliet.

This recital, which was postponed on Feb. 25 due to inclement weather, is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 710-3991.
