Faculty perform musical pieces

Lori Neprud-Ardovino and Laurie Middaugh, faculty members in the music department, recently performed at the University of Oklahoma’s 34th Annual Clarinet Symposium.

Ardovino and Middaugh performed “Aviary Divertimento” for Eb clarinet/Bb clarinet/Bass clarinet and piano by Jeffrey Agrell, and Ardovino premiered her own composition, “Variations on Themes by Black Sabbath” for bass clarinet and digital delay. Ardovino also has been selected as the 2010 Alabama Music Teachers Association commissioned composer.

She will compose a work to be performed at the state convention to be held at the University of Montevallo next year.
