ULM Guest Artist Series

The University of Louisiana at Monroe opens its Guest Artist Series in 2005 with John and Julie Cheek, duo pianists. They will be presenting a concert on the two Fazioli pianos in Emy Lou Biedenharn Recital Hall, January 20 at 7:30 p.m. The brother and sister duo often play together as well as separately on Fazioli pianos. Dr. Julie Cheek presented a recital on the 500th Fazioli piano that was broadcast on "Performance Today" over National Public Radio. Their program is another in a series of concerts featuring the ULM Fazioli pianos which has featured Dr. Gregory Pepetone and Dr. Richard Seiler in solo recitals last September.

In October ULM faculty members Deborah Guillory, Richard Seiler, and Coralee White presented a recital as part of the Louisiana Music Teacher's State Convention hosted by the Division of Music at ULM. In November the ULM keyboard faculty with ULM percussionists, Larry Anderson and Mel Mobley performed the "Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion" by Bela Bartok. On March 20 a recital by pianist Lisa Whithers will again feature the Fazioli piano. Tickets for the Guest Artist Concert Series are $10 and can be purchased at the door or by calling 342-3811.
