The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. in Wattenbarger Auditorium in the Bryan Fine Arts building. It is free and open to the public.

Pianist Joy Rachor, music director at First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, will provide accompaniment.

The concert will begin with “Fantasie,” a contest piece written for students of the Paris Conservatory in 1913 by Georges Hue. Paul Hindemith’s 1936 “Sonata for Flute and Piano,” a four-movement piece ranging from peppy to poignant, will follow. Rachor and Martin will play Caesar Giovannini’s “Morocco” and Eldin Burton’s 1948 “Sonatina for Flute and Piano,” which evokes old movie scores with an emphasis on sentimental melody. The final piece in the evening’s performance will be Kenneth Laufer’s “Scars and Scrapes Forever” for piccolo and piano, a re-working of John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever.”
