Husband-and-wife piano and saxophone duo to present guest recital at BYU Sept. 14

The School of Music at Brigham Young University will host a husband-and-wife piano and saxophone duo Thursday, Sept. 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Marilyn Shrude, pianist and composer, and John Sampen, saxophonist, will perform the Utah premiere of two new works written specifically for Sampen.

The first, “Lacrimosa,” was written by Shrude for the duo, and the other, “American Dreamscape,” was written by BYU faculty composer Steven L. Ricks. Three faculty artists will join Sampen in the “American Dreamscape” performance, including Scott Holden on piano, Eric Hansen on bass and Ron Brough on percussion.

The couple will also present the September lecture in the School of Music Lecture Series earlier that day at 11 a.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Admission to both events is free.

For more information, contact Steven L. Ricks at (801) 422-6115.
