Guest artist Frank Kowalsky, a clarinetist from Florida State University, will present a recital on the Brigham Young University campus Thursday, Oct. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. This event is free.

The performance will begin with the Sonatina for clarinet and piano by Bohuslav Martinu, Four Pieces for clarinet and piano, Op. 5 by Alban Berg, and Concert Piece No. 1 in f minor, Op. 113 by Felix Mendelssohn.

He will be accompanied by Carolyn Bridger, piano, and Jaren Hinckley, clarinet. Bridger is also a professor in the music department at FSU with Kowalsky. Hinckley received his doctoral degree from FSU under the direction of Kowalsky and now holds an associate professor position in the BYU School of Music.

Kowalsky has performed as principal clarinetist with orchestras throughout the United States, including the Naples Philharmonic, Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra and the Northwood Orchestra. He has also been a member of the United States Marine Band, the Colorado Philharmonic and the Rochester Philharmonic.

A member of the faculty at the Interlochen Arts Academy for ten years, he has been professor of clarinet at FSU since 1984. He holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music, the Manhattan School of Music and the Catholic University of America.
