I will be on campus Wednesday and Thursday, February 5-6 and hope I will be able to meet with your students. With applications for Fall 2014 semester due 3/1/2014 and Spring 2015 applications due 5/1/2014, classroom presentations are an important reminder so students don’t miss out on the opportunity. If you haven’t already done so, please email Doug Sonheim with the following information:

Ouachita Baptist University will host trombonist Dr. Bruce Faske in concert on Thursday, Feb. 6, at 7:30 p.m. in McBeth Recital Hall, located in Mabee Fine Arts Center. The concert is free and open to the public.
Dr. Justin Isenhour, assistant professor of music at Ouachita, is coordinating the event with the hope that it will be an enriching experience both for students and the community.
“It’s important for the students to be exposed to more music, and it’s good for the community,” said Isenhour. “With music, so much is open to interpretation as different performers make equally valid but unique decisions. In my teaching I try to be open to that; hosting a guest artist on campus really reinforces this concept. Bruce is a wonderful musician and I want our students to learn from his expertise.
Dr. Adam Haas, OBU lecturer in music, will accompany Faske on the piano.
The concert program includes “Oboe Concerto in D Minor” by Tomaso Albinoni, “Forever” by Arthur Pryor, David Fetter’s arrangement of “Dona Nobis Pacem” by Giovanni Perluigi da Palestrina and “Romance” by David Uber. The final piece of the recital will be the world premiere of Frank Gulino’s “Southeastern Rhapsody.”
Faske currently serves as adjunct instructor of trombone and euphonium at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. He also serves as trombone instructor at Colleyville Heritage High School, Colleyville Middle School and in the Lewisville Independent School District. Faske earned his Doctor of Musical Arts degree in trombone performance from the University of Alabama, his Master of Music degree from Baylor University and a Bachelor of Science in Music degree from Texas A&M University-Commerce. Faske has performed with the Dallas Opera as well as the Brazos Valley, Meridian, San Antonio, Starkville, Tuscaloosa and Waco Symphony Orchestras. Faske is a trombone artist for the Edwards Instrument Company and performs on the T396-A Alessi model trombone.
Haas holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in piano performance from the University of Colorado as well as degrees from Indiana University and Colorado State University. He has performed with the New York Concerti Sinfonietta, the Loveland Orchestra and the Colorado State University Orchestra. He has been featured in chamber performances with the Fort Collins Chamber Players and the Colorado State University Chamber Orchestra. He has presented at numerous conferences at the national and state levels and has studied and performed at the Aspen Music Festival and the New Orleans Piano Institute.
