SLU FACULTY WOODWIND QUINTET PLANS CONCERT
HAMMOND -- Southeastern Louisiana
University’s Faculty Woodwind Quintet will present its fall concert Thursday,
November 21, at the Music Recital Hall.
The free concert is scheduled
for 7:30 p.m. Members of the quintet are Southeastern faculty members Carolyn
Treybig, flute; Mary Kay Young, oboe; Deborah Andrus, clarinet; Janiece
Luedeke, horn; and Jerry Voorhees, bassoon.
“The concert will be filled with
mixed duos and trios by Koechlin, Kummer, Dukas and Piazzolla, a quartet
by Jean Francaix for winds, and conclude with Carl Nielsen's ‘Quintet,
Op. 43' for woodwind quintet,” said Andrus.
The program also will feature
Southeastern music faculty members Allen Zurcher, saxophone; Patrick Kerber,
guitar; and Thais Perkins, piano.
Voorhees has been a member of
the music faculty since 1971. A graduate of the University of North Texas
and Yale University, he also studied electronic music at Dartmouth College.
Because of his avid interest in the history of musical instruments, he
founded and directs the Collegium Musicum, a group that performs period
music on antique instruments.
An active performer, Voorhees
is principal bassoonist for the Jefferson Orchestra and has been principal
soloist with the Baton Rouge Orchestra and the New Orleans Ballet Orchestra.
Besides bassoon, he plays the recorder, flute, and oboe. He also directs
Southeastern’s annual Young Musicians Camp.

woodwind chamber music and music appreciation, holds degrees in clarinet
performance from State University of New York-Potsdam, and Michigan State
University and received a doctoral degree in clarinet performance from
The Ohio State University.
Before coming to Southeastern,
she was on the faculty at Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss. In
summer 2000 and 2001, she was the featured soloist with the Ringgold
Band in Reading, Penn. She recently was appointed to teach clarinet at
the New England Music Camp in Oakland, Maine, in summer 2002.
Luedeke is a graduate of Louisiana
State University, the University of Akron and the Lawrence Conservatory
of Music. She was a featured soloist at the 1999 Southeast Horn Conference
and has performed professionally with the Ohio Ballet Orchestra, the Akron
Symphony Orchestra and the Ohio Light Opera Orchestra. She currently performs
with the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra, the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra
of Lafayette, the Natchez Summer Opera and the Louisiana Brass.
Previously, she was instructor
of high brass at Malone College in Canton, Ohio, and was the brass methods
instructor at the Lawrence Conservatory. She has taught public school extensively
in Wisconsin and in East Baton Rouge Parish, where she teaches in the gifted
and talented program.
