Clarinet Recital with Deborah Andrus and Ensemble

Bethlehem, Pa., January 19, 2006— The Moravian College Music Department will present a faculty recital by Dr. Deborah Andrus on Sunday, January 22. Andrus, the department’s artist-lecturer in clarinet, will be joined by several friends – pianists Eun Ae Baik-Kim and Lois Hobbs Yu, violinist Blanka Bednarz, and fellow Moravian artist-lecturer David Moulton. The program includes several clarinet standards like “Adagio” from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622 and Brahms Op. 114 “Trio for Piano, Clarinet, and Cello in A minor” as well as more modern works like Bartok’s “Contrasts for Clarinet, Violin, and Piano” and Horovitz’ Sonatina.

The concert will be held at 4 p.m. at Moravian’s Peter Hall, located on the college’s Priscilla Payne Hurd Campus, located at the corner of Main and Church Streets in Bethlehem. General admission is $12 and a reduced rate of $6 is available for senior citizens, students, and children under 12.

Andrus is a new member of the Moravian College faculty. In addition to her teaching duties, she directs the Clarinet Choir and is the outreach coordinator for the Music Department. Prior to coming to Moravian, Andrus was a member of the Delta State University (Cleveland, Mississippi) and Southeastern Louisiana University (Hammond, Louisiana) faculties. She earned her doctorate from The Ohio State University in 1998.

Andrus’ performing career is extensive, including solo, chamber ensembles, and orchestra performances in the United States, Canada, and Europe. She spent three years as the principal clarinetist at the Natchez (MS) Opera Festival. She was also the featured soloist with the Reading, Pennsylvania Ringgold Band for two summers. Andrus spends her summers teaching and performing at the New England Music Camp in Sidney, Maine.
