Jazz director performs classical recital
The University of Wisconsin-Superior Music Department hosts Greg Kehl Moore on saxophone for its University Recital Series at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29 in the Webb Recital Hall.
"It's a wonderful opportunity for me to present music to the community," said Moore, associate professor of music and jazz program director at UWS. "It's a way for me to showcase different aspects of what I can do musically. What's new for me is that it will be the first time that I will give a classical recital on campus."
Moore performs "Caprice en Forme de Valse" composed by Paul Bonneau; "Concerto in C Minor" composed by Johann Sebastian Bach; and "Warm Fuzzies" composed by UWS alumnus David Packa; among others. The performance also features Moore collaborating with many members of the UWS Music Department. Erin Aldridge, Brett Jones, Hector Landa, Melanie Sever and Zoe Scherer join Moore for several of the performances. The concert also features guest performers Brad Bombardier, Kevin Hoeschen and Randy Lee.
The evening will be highlighted by "Tableauz de Provence," composed by Paule Maurice and arranged for saxophone quartet by Moore. Joining Moore for the premiere of this arrangement will be Bombardier, Lee and Scherer.
"I'm really excited for all of the collaboration that is going to go into this," said Moore. "I'm hoping this will be a fun time for the audience and my colleagues I will be performing with."
