Musical Homage

comment
Oboist Roger Weismeyer is keeping busy — right on the heels of a beautiful solo feature with the Nashville Symphony in mid-January, he leads a recital of woodwind music by California-based composer John Marvin. Weismeyer brings together a host of friends for the concert, including fellow Blair faculty members clarinetist Cassandra Lee and fellow oboist Jared Hauser. The program includes Marvin's 2003 Quintet for Winds, originally commissioned by the Blair Woodwind Quintet. Weismeyer takes up the English horn in Marvin's Trio for 2 Oboes and English Horn, and returns to his oboe for the composer's Woodwind Octet.
Tue., Feb. 9, 8 p.m., 2010
