CULLOWHEE – Three members of the faculty of Western Carolina University’s School of Music will present a recital at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19, in the recital hall of WCU’s Coulter Building.

The free performance will feature faculty musicians Alicia Chapman on oboe, Will Peebles on bassoon, and Shannon Thompson on clarinet. They will be accompanied by pianist Lillian Buss Pearson.

The concert will include a performance of French composer Joseph Canteloube’s “Rustiques”; “South American Memento” by Dutch composer Hugo de Groot; the romantic “Trio pathetique for clarinet, bassoon and piano” by Russian composer Mikhail Glinka; and French composer Francis Poulenc’s “Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano.”

Chapman, Peebles and Thompson have played for many years together as members of the woodwind section in the Asheville Symphony Orchestra, where Chapman serves as principal oboist. She joined the WCU faculty in the fall as oboe instructor.

Pearson is a certified teacher of the Alexander Technique and was head of the keyboard area at WCU prior to 2007.
