Angelo State Music Faculty Recital Jan. 29
Angelo State University will host an evening of musical entertainment, featuring Dr. Jeff Womack, assistant professor of music, Tuesday, Jan. 29, in the Carr Education-Fine Arts (EFA) Building, 2602 Dena Drive.
The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the EFA Building Recital Hall and is open free to the public. An accomplished musician and Principal Bassoonist for the San Angelo Symphony, Womack will be performing works by composers Weissenborn, Vivaldi, Lussier and Mockert. He will be accompanied by several other ASU music faculty members, including Dr. Eleanor Elkins on piano, Dr. John Irish on trumpet and Daniel McCloud on percussion.
One of the selections by French-Canadian composer Mathieu Lussier is a tango that Womack describes as “one of the most luscious and elegant pieces I have heard for the bassoon in recent time.” The second Lussier piece will be a duet with Irish on trumpet. Another highlight of the evening will be a Brazilian jazz number by Jorge Mockert to close the concert.
Womack has performed nationally with the Bismarck-Mandan Symphony Orchestra, Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra and Kokopelli Wind Quartet. He has also taught master classes at Kansas State University, the University of Oklahoma and the Cork Institute of Music in Ireland. He is a founding member of the bassoon quartet Depraved Indifference that performed recently at the International Double Reed Society at Ball State University.
