Brigham Young University’s School of Music welcomes guest artist Marti Marie Castle, soprano, who will perform a recital titled “Songs of Children and Heaven” Saturday, Oct. 8, at 3:45 p.m. in the Museum of Art at BYU.

Castle will be accompanied by Larry Blackburn on piano, as well as Amy Baron, Erin Gardner and Charity Wardell. Admission is free and the public is welcome.

The recital is divided into four sections with songs revolving around the themes of fun and games, dreams and memories, pain and suffering, and joy and thanksgiving. Selections include “Hans und Grethe” by Gustav Mahler, “La petite servante” by Francis Poulenc and “Joy” by Ricky Ian Gordon, among others.

With 35 years of vocal experience, Castle has enjoyed teaching private voice lessons as adjunct faculty at BYU-Idaho since September 2002. She has also taught voice at Utah State University in Logan and at BYU in Provo. She earned her bachelor of music from California State University, Los Angeles in 1990 and a master’s degree in vocal performance from BYU in 2003 with a minor in music education.

Enjoying a 16-year career as a soloist and chorister in the Southern California region, Castle has sung with all of the area’s most prestigious professional ensembles and orchestras, including the Los Angeles Master Chorale, L.A. Philharmonic, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, L.A. Chamber Singers and at the renowned Ojai Festival. Most recently she soloed with Utah Valley’s Wasatch Chorale in Mozart’s Requiem.

She has also performed in more than 40 opera productions with the Los Angeles Music Center Opera and a variety of other L.A. area venues.
