The Laureate Wind Quintet, one of the premiere chamber ensembles in residence at WVU, will present a recital at the Creative Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3 in the Bloch Learning and Performance Hall (200A). The event is free and open to the public.
Faculty members performing include Francesca Arnone, flute; Cynthia Anderson, oboe; John Weigand, clarinet; Lynn Hilemann, bassoon; and Virginia Thompson, horn.
