by Richard Veit

Five members of the Baylor University music faculty will present "An Evening of Woodwind Chamber Music" at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, in Roxy Grove Hall.

Performing will be Helen Ann Shanley, associate professor of flute; Doris DeLoach, professor of oboe; Richard Shanley, professor of clarinet; and Kenton Moore, assistant professor of bassoon. Also appearing on the program will be Brian Marks, assistant professor of piano.

The concert will open with "V'ha-eir Eineinu" by American composer Paul Richards, who served at Baylor as lecturer in music composition from 1998 to 1999. Moore will be the soloist.

Next will come a piece by Joseph Landers titled "Late Summer Arioso," featuring DeLoach and Marks, and then "Jazz Set," a 1978 composition by the late William O. Smith, who served for 41 years as assistant conductor of Eugene Ormandy's Philadelphia Orchestra.

A baroque work will follow--the Trio Sonata in G Major by Johann Joachim Quantz--with Shanley (flute) and Moore (bassoon). DeLoach will play oboe d'amore in this piece, and Marks will play harpsichord.

Richard Rodney Bennett's "Six Tunes for the Instruction of Singing Birds" was written in 1981, and it will showcase the talents of Shanley as flute soloist. She will be joined by DeLoach and Moore in the Trio for Flute, Oboe, and Bassoon of Giuseppe Cambini.

Closing the program will be French composer Claude Arrieu's "Suite en quatre," with the four woodwind faculty.

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