‘American Originals’ offered in faculty recital

David Reynolds

The South Dakota State University Department of Music presents department head David Reynolds in a faculty recital at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, in Lincoln Music Hall on the SDSU campus.

Reynolds' recital is coined “American Originals,” referring to the repertoire having been written by composers from the United States. The recital includes two South Dakota premiers.

Featured on the program is Anthony Plog’s “Homage to Antonio Vivald” for two trumpets and Florida composer Paul Basler’s 2012 composition, “Diversions for Trumpet and Piano.” Reynolds will also perform a work written by Connecticut-based composer Meg Bowles, “Night Sun Journey,” for trumpet and synthesizer. Alan Hovhaness’ masterwork, “Haroutiun for Trumpet” is also on the program and a traditional rag by Scott Joplin completes the recital.

Mary Walker from the SDSU piano faculty will accompany. Robert McCurdy, trumpeter and faculty member in jazz appreciation and improvisation, will also assist.
The program will is free of charge and the public is invited to attend. Call the SDSU Music Department at 688-5187 for more information.
