JOHNSON CITY (September 11, 2013) – “Red-Hot and Blue,” a recital of contemporary oboe music by living North American composers, will be presented at East Tennessee State University on Friday, Sept. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mathes Hall auditorium.
Oboist Dr. Heather Killmeyer, an assistant professor in the ETSU Department of Music, will be accompanied by chirping crickets, howling coyotes and other creatures in Phillip Kent Bimstein’s humorous “Half Moon at Checkerboard Mesa.”
Also on the program are “Garden of Follies” by Pulitzer Prize-nominated composer Andrew Norman and the world premiere of a new oboe sonata by Bill Douglas. The recital will end with Jeffrey Agrell’s “Blues for D.D,” a jazz piece for oboe, piano, bass and percussion.
Killmeyer will be accompanied by Ann Jones on piano and fellow Department of Music faculty members Martin Walters and Dr. Rande Sanderbeck on bass and percussion, respectively.
The performance is free and open to the public. For more information or special assistance for those with disabilities, call the Department of Music at (423) 439-4276.
