Graduates students from Bowling Green State University's College of Musical Arts are fanning out into the community to present concerts.
The events are part of a professional development class taught by Andrew Pelletier.
Concerts scheduled are:
• Music for woodwinds performed by Jory King, Jayde Weide, and Caitlin Phillips on flute and Eric Salazar on clarinet Saturday at 2 p.m. at The Happy Badger in downtown Bowling Green. On the program will be: Flute Trio by Alexander Tcherepnine; Duos for Flute and Clarinet by Robert Muczynski; Choros No. 2 by Heitor Villa-Lobos; Divertissement by Friedrich Kuhlau; Charanga by Michael Colquhaun; and Three Pieces for Clarinet by Igor Stravinsky.
King noted: "The program is, by design, more modern than the usual. The pieces are more readily understandable by the audience because they are based on rhythms they have, more than likely, encountered in popular music such as rock or jazz. The hope of our concert was to bring classical music to an audience that doesn't usually hear it."
• An Evening of Brass from the last 100 years featuring Julia Brooks on horn, Peter Deal on trombone, James Sebring on trumpet and Joseph Ready on tuba will be presented Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Pemberville Opera House. On the program will be: Quatre Variations sur un the de domenico by Marcel Bitsch; Parable VIII by Persichettito performed by Brooks; Variations on Barnacle Bill the Sailor by Steve Frank played by Ready; Postcards III by Anthony Plog; R. Wilsonby Alan Tormey played by Brooks; and Sonata for Horn, Trumpet, and Trombone by Francois Poulenc.
• The BGSU Graduate String Quartet - Kaiwei Chen and Vladimir Gebe, violins, Kyla Witt, viola, and Jesse Calcat, cello - will perform Nov. 21 at 6:30 p.m. in the Wood County Library in downtown Bowling Green. The program is: Biagio Marini 's Passacaglia √† 3 & √† 4; Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat Major, the "Harp Quartet"; and Robert Schumann's String Quartet No. 3 in A. All the members of the quartet are on full-tuition scholarships and serve as section leaders in the BG Philharmonia.
• "Sounds," music for clarinet performed by Andrew Kier and Meghan Yankowskas Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the LeSo Gallery, 1527 Starr Ave., Toledo. The repertoire consists of unaccompanied 20th-century clarinet music by composers such as Bela Kovacs, Olivier Messaien, Heinrich Sutermeister, and Joan Tower. Yankowskas said the pieces were chosen "to showcase the very varied writing styles for this medium over the last century."
