Jeffrey S. Powers, newly appointed assistant professor of french horn in the Baylor University School of Music, will present a faculty recital at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 30, in Roxy Grove Hall.

Powers became a member of the Baylor music faculty earlier this month following completion of his 16-year tenure as principal horn of the Royal Philharmonic of Flanders. He also has served as guest principal horn with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Luxembourg, the Flemish Radio Orchestra, the Brabants Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Chamber Orchestra of Wallonia. He has performed with the Cleveland Orchestra and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, among many others.

The recital will open with Intrada for Horn Alone, written in 1958 by Dutch composer Otto Ketting. He will be joined by accompanist Bradley Bolen, lecturer in piano, for a performance of the Sonata for Horn and Piano by Paul Hindemith.

Bernhard Krol's Laudatio for Horn Solo and Edmond Marc's Gethsemani Meditation for Horn and Piano will follow.

Concluding the recital will be one of the most often heard chamber works of Camille Saint-Saëns, his Morceau de Concert for Horn and Piano, Op. 94, which was written in Paris in 1893.

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