April Clayton performs new works at faculty flute recital Jan. 20

Brigham Young University School of Music faculty member April Clayton will perform a flute recital Friday, Jan. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. Admission is free.

Clayton will perform a variety of pieces, including “Chant de Linos” by Jolivet and “rapid.fire” by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon. These new pieces are some of the most challenging compositions ever written for flute.

She received her doctor of musical arts degree from the Juilliard School. She has performed all over the world, including Italy's Palazzo dei Congressi, Leipzig's Gewandhaus, Moscow's Rachmaninoff Hall, the Holders' Season Festival in Barbados, as well as at venues in Brazil, Mexico, South Korea and across the United States.

Her debut solo album was recorded in June 2004 with Grammy-winner Max Wilcox. She received two "best performance" awards from the National Flute Association for her renditions of newly commissioned compositions.

She is a member of the BYU faculty ensemble Orpheus Wind Quintet.

For more information, contact April Clayton at (801) 422-1177.
