by Richard Veit

David Graves, a lecturer in low brass in the Baylor University School of Music, will present a faculty tuba recital at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 10, in Meadows Recital Hall, located in the Glennis McCrary Music Building. He will be joined by graduate pianist Jesse Davis.

The program will open with an arrangement of Antonio Vivaldi's Trio Sonata in C major, Op. 13, No. 2, followed by a contemporary piece, Encounters II, by American composer William Kraft.

A second tubist, Emanuel Jester III, will collaborate with Graves in a performance of Beethoven's Duo No. 1, originally scored for clarinet and bassoon but transcribed for a pair of tubas by Don Harry.

Following a brief intermission, the recital will continue with Formal Persistence by Lon W. Chaffin, followed by an arrangement of the beautiful Pavane of Gabriel Fauré.

The program will conclude with Christer Danielsson's Concertant Suite, which will feature three student hornists -- Stephen Aaron, Scott Buford and Jessica Todd -- along with Jeffrey Powers, assistant professor of horn.

Graves holds a master of music degree from the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire and a bachelor of music degree from Memphis State University. He has performed as principal tubist of the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra, the University of Illinois Symphonic Band and the Memphis Youth Symphony; as tubist with the United States Air Force Band of the West, the Bluff City Brass Quintet, the Memphis Tuba Quartet and the Dixieland jazz band Medicare 7, 8, or 9; as associate tubist with the Civic Orchestra of Chicago; and as substitute tubist with the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra and the Memphis Symphony Orchestra.

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