John Bailey, professor of flute, will present an evening of flute chamber music at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 23 in Kimball Recital Hall. The free performance, “Flute and Friends,” will feature Bailey performing with colleagues.
In addition to performing a single piece for flute alone (by composer Katherine Hoover), Bailey will be joined by organist Christopher Marks on three short pieces by French composer Jehan Alain. In addition, Bailey and Marks will perform a light piece for harpsichord, flute, and clarinet (with clarinetist Diane Barger) by French composer Florent Schmitt. Also on the program is a work for flute and bass (with bassist Hans Sturm), and for flute and percussion (with percussionist David Hall).
“I’m excited to work with faculty members, with whom I have not collaborated before, and to bring to life some repertoire that doesn’t get performed that often,” Bailey said.
Also on the program, a fairy tale for flute and narrator (voice professor Donna Harler-Smith) by English composer Alan Ridout.
