Oboist Marlen Vavriková will present a Brigham Young University School of Music guest recital Friday, Jan. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital assisted by BYU faculty pianist Jeffrey Shumway.

Her performance is part of a Double Reed Roundup hosted by the School of Music. Admission is free, and the public is welcome to attend.
