Michael Hicks to present BYU faculty composition recital Sept. 17

Brigham Young University School of Music faculty member Michael Hicks will present a composition recital Friday, Sept. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall.

Admission is free and open to the public.

The recital consists of 14 songs written and performed by Hicks. The title of his program is "Personal Effects."

"The lyrics throughout are very personal, all dealing with love and loss in some form or another--the real topic of all songs, I believe," Hicks said. "It's a sentimental recital, no doubt, and I really want to bring my listeners into the same 'sentimental mood,' but always in an artful, well-crafted way."

Hicks teaches full-time in the School of Music specializing in theory and composition. He was a guest lecturer at Stanford and the University of California at Berkeley, and his work has been performed and recorded throughout the country.

For more information, contact Michael Hicks at (801) 422-2275.
