BYU faculty Orpheus Winds plans Feb. 3 free recital

The School of Music at Brigham Young University will feature Orpheus Winds, its resident faculty woodwind quintet, in a performance Thursday, Feb. 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

The concert is free, and the public is encouraged to attend.

Please note: A previous YNEWS notice incorrectly listed the date as Feb.2.

The evening’s program of instrumental music includes Quintet in D minor, Op. 68, No. 3 by Franz Danzi; Reflection for Woodwind Quintet by quintet member Laurence Lowe; and Quintet for Winds No. 2 by David Maslanka.

Orpheus Winds is comprised of five BYU faculty-performers: April Clayton, flute; Geralyn Giovannetti, oboe; Jaren Hinckley, clarinet; Christian Smith, bassoon; and Laurence Lowe, French horn.

“We’re professional performers, not just teachers,” said Jaren Hinckley, a BYU clarinet professor, in a 2009 Daily Universe article.

For more information about the free concert, contact Ken Crossley at (801) 422-9348 or ken_crossley@byu.edu.
