Feb. 13, 2004

KALAMAZOO--The University Symphonic Band will present familiar compositions by Malcolm Arnold, Henry Purcell, Daniel Buckvich and John Philip Sousa in a 3 p.m. concert Sunday, Feb. 22, in Miller Auditorium at Western Michigan University.

In addition to the more familiar classics, the band will perform "Slattergille," a folk rhapsody by Swedish composer Albert Lofgren, as will a new work by Brian Balmages titled "Pele."

Featured soloist for "Pele" is Dr. Lin Foulk, a member of the WMU music faculty. Foulk has performed as principal horn with the Oshkosh and Manitowoc Symphony Orchestras, and as a member of the Wisconsin Wind Orchestra and Quinthorne Brass Quintet. In addition, she frequently performed with the Milwaukee and Madison Symphony Orchestras in Wisconsin. Especially interested in music with horn by women composers, Foulk has performed nationally at several women composer festivals in addition to serving on the board of the International Alliance for Women in Music. She also created, hosted, and engineered programs for "Other Voices" on WORT FM in Madison, which featured music by women composers and performers.
