Fenglírë, a Reed Trio

Recommended Posts

The trio Fenglírë, comprising an oboe, clarinet and bassoon, will perform 3:00 p.m. Sunday, May 12, at the Allen Public Library.  On reed instruments, the trio’s concert will feature a wide variety of contemporary songs, including a piece by 20th century British composer Gordon Jacob, a 21st century piece by Emmy-winning composer William Bradbury based on the meditative music of Javanese gamelan, and “Found Objects on the Beach” by award-winning composer Jenni Brandon.   

 

Formerly a graduate teaching assistant at the University of North Texas, oboist Ashley Rollins was a featured English horn soloist on the North Texas Wind Symphony's premiere recording of Ryan George's The Wild Goose and was invited to perform the Marcello Oboe Concerto with the Nashville Summer Orchestral Institute. 

Clarinetist Jason Baker holds a clarinet position with New Life Symphony and the Dallas Civic Wind Ensemble.  Previously, Jason played clarinet in the Marine Corps, conducted local musical theater shows, been a graduate teaching assistant at UT Arlington, and produced his own CDs.

A freelance bassoonist and chamber musician, Ryan Morris performed for the Greater Princeton Steinway Society in New Jersey in January 2018.   He also spent two summers as a quintet/sextet fellow in the Imani Winds Chamber Music Festival, performing with the Force Five woodwind quintet of the Air Force Reserve and alongside the Grammy-nominated Imani Winds. 

Sponsored by the Allen Public Library, the concert is free.   The library is located at 300 N. Allen Dr.  Call 214-509-4911 for additional information
