The concert will begin with a variety of arrangements for clarinet quartet. “We will begin with an arrangement of the fourth and fifth movements of Handel’s “Concerto Grosso Opus 6 No. 1. Both pieces are named ‘Allegro,’” Dr. Denis Santos, assistant professor of music, said. An arrangement of a piece from the Renaissance period called “Fantasy No. 4” by William Byrd will also be played.

Later in the program, a contemporary piece, “When Sunny Gets Blue” by Jack Segal, and a clarinet quartet, “Cotton Candy” by David Marlatt, will be performed.

Performers for the concert include Catherine Bryant, Luke Cave, Kate Claunch, Laura McPherson, Daisy Rodriguez, Hayley Rockwell and Robin Wilson, all on clarinet.

The flute ensemble will also feature an array of artists. “We will begin our portion of the concert with an arrangement of a flute sonata by Frederick the Great, King of Persia, arranged for flute solo and flute ensemble with cello accompaniment,” Dr. Lisa McArthur, professor of music, said.

Kaylee Burchett will be the soloist for the first arrangement. Other performers for the first arrangement include Kathlynne Berry, Madison Lynn, McArthur on flute, and Saulo DeAlmeida, instructor in music, cello and jazz, on cello.

The second arrangement, “Water Music” by Georg Frideric Handel, will be a flute quartet featuring Berry, Burchett, Lynn and McArthur.

A collection of Stephen Foster’s songs will be played for flute ensemble featuring oboe students Anna Avery and Madison Bishop. “We are dedication that piece to the memory of Dr. David Hedrick, former Campbellsville University faculty member and director of the Stephen Foster Story,” McArthur said.

Avery and Bishop will also play an oboe duet by Franz Wilhelm Ferling called “Arietta.”

“We will close the concert with an arrangement of a piece for all performers to join together, clarinet, flute and oboe. It is a Brazilian Choro titled “André de Sapato Novo.”
