Flute, piano featured in faculty recital series at Willamette University

Flautist Sarah Tiedemann and pianist Cary Lewis are presenting Willamette University’s first Music Faculty Recital Series performance of the season on Sept. 6.

The program — filled with some of the greatest soaring melodies of the flute repertoire — begins at 7:30 p.m. in Hudson Hall’s Rogers Music Center. It will feature works by such artists as J.S. Bach, Philippe Gaubert, Otar Taktakishvili and Charles Knox.

Tickets will be available at the door. The suggested donation is $8 for adults and $5 for students. Admission is free for Willamette faculty members, staff and students with I.D.
