Nebraska’s next faculty recital will feature oboist William McMullen with pianist Catherine Herbener at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 11 in Kimball Recital Hall. The performance is free and open to the public.

The repertoire for “An Evening of French Oboe Music” includes four works for oboe by French composers François Couperin, Benjamin Godard, Francis Poulenc, and Pierre Sancan. The program represents literature from the mid-Baroque era, flourishing in the French royal court, to Romantic French salon music to mid- and late-20th century.

McMullen is a professor of music with a focus on oboe instruction. He is principal oboe with the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra and a member of the Moran Woodwind Quartet. He has appeared as soloist with the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra and the Nebraska Chamber Orchestra in performances of the Strauss, Mozart and Vaughan-Williams concertos.

Herbener is a Lincoln-based performer and teacher of piano. She is featured with McMullen and two other musicians on the album “20th Century British Music for Oboe and Piano.”
