BYU School of Music offers three free recitals Oct. 12-13

The Brigham Young University School of Music will offer faculty and guest artists in three free recitals Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12-13, in the Madsen Recital Hall of the Harris Fine Arts Center.

• Guest artist Lori Sims, a pianist from Western Michigan University, will present a recital Friday at 5:30 p.m. She will perform the Goldberg Variations by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Sims received her bachelor’s degree from the Peabody Conservatory and her master’s degree from the Yale School of Music. She received a “Solistendiplom,” or artist diploma, from the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover, Germany.

She received the Gold Medal at the 1998 Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition, where she also won the prize for the best performance of a work by Brahms. She has performed throughout Europe, China, South Africa, Israel and North America, including recitals at Carnegie’s Weill Hall and Zankel Hall.

Sims resides in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she holds the John T. Bernhard Chair as Professor of Piano at Western Michigan University.

For more information, contact Ken Crossley at (801) 422-9348.

• The Orpheus Winds Quintet, composed of five School of Music faculty members, will perform Friday at 7:30 p.m.

The concert will begin with "Umoja” by Valerie Coleman, “Dos Tropicos!” by Mathieu Lussier and “Motion” by Alyssa Morris, who is a BYU graduate student. Following a brief intermission, the concert will conclude with the Allegro and Arioso by Ingolf Dahl and “Startin’ Sumthin’” by Jeff Scott.

The performers in the quintet are April Clayton, flute; Geralyn Giovannetti, oboe; Jaren Hinckley, clarinet; Christian Smith, bassoon; and Laurence Lowe, French horn.

For more information, contact Ken Crossley at (801) 422-9348.

• School of Music faculty artist Jaren Hinckley will be performing a  clarinet concert Saturday, Oct. 13, at 7:30 p.m.  He will be assisted by Vince Humphries on the piano. This recital will double as a CD release event for Hinckley.

He will perform “Elegie” by Veronique Poltz, “Sonatina” by Joseph Horovitz, “Pocket Size" Sonata No. 1 by Alec Templeton, Clarinet Sonata (1989) by David Baker and Suite for Flute and Jazz Trio by Claude Bolling.

Hinckley received his doctor of music degree at Florida State University, a master’s degree in clarinet performance from Indiana University and a bachelor of music degree from the University of Utah.

Included in his solo work are performances with the Utah Symphony, the Canyonlands New Music Ensemble and the Manhattan School of Music Philharmonia. He has recorded two CDs with the Canyonlands New Music Ensemble and the Utah Composers Ensemble — chamber groups dedicated to the advancement of new music.

Through his involvement with these groups and others, he has performed the world premieres of many solo and chamber works. He has created a new approach to music pedagogy based on the acting techniques of Constantin Stanislavski.

For more information on this recital, contact Jaren Hinckley at (801)422-6339 or by email at clarinet@byu.edu.
