Brigham Young University’s School of Music will showcase the talents of selected performing groups in two Chamber Nights Friday and Saturday, Nov. 14-15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center.

Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.

The Friday concert will feature a Saxophone Chamber Night showcase. The saxophone studio will present a program from the standard literature for saxophone quartet. The recital will consist of mostly French works from the late 19th and 20th century.

A saxophone quartet will perform “Introduction et variations sur un thème populaire” by Gabriel Pierné, “Suite” by Jean Françaix and “Quatour” by Pierre Max Dubois. A second quartet will present “Concertino” by Marcel Poot, “July” by Michael Torke and the Sonata, op. 17, no. 8 in B-flat major by Johann Christian Bach.

The Saturday concert will feature a Woodwind Chamber Night showcase. Several woodwind quintets and trios, coached by BYU faculty members, will perform standard woodwind chamber music. The program will include music by Madeleine Dring, Mozart and other composers. The standard woodwind ensemble will feature oboe, clarinet, flute, bassoon and French horn.
