NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Stephen F. Austin State University’s Micky Elliott College of Fine Arts and School of Music will present Duo Karudan performing a program that features works by living American composers at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26, in Cole Concert Hall on the SFA campus.
Duo Karudan features the husband-and-wife team of SFA clarinetist Dr. Christopher Ayer, professor, and Baylor University pianist Dr. Kae Hosoda-Ayer, associate professor of piano and director of collaborative piano.
Their SFA program will include works by Martin Rokeach, Libby Larsen, James David, Leonard Mark Lewis, Simon Sargon, Paquito D’Rivera and Jeff Scott. Two of the pieces, “North Beach Rhapsody” by Rokeach and “Toccata” by Scott, were part of a recital the couple performed over the summer at the International Clarinet Association’s world conference in Reno, Nevada.
“There is a wide range of musical styles, from avant-garde to jazz, represented in this concert,” Ayer said. “There will be something for everyone!”
