The Edmond Sun

EDMOND — The University of Central Oklahoma will present a performance featuring assistant professor of clarinet Dawn Marie Lindblade at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth Street in Edmond.           

This concert is a part of the Faculty Artist Concert Series, a yearlong performance series that highlights the talents of Central music faculty members. All performances take place on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. at the Jazz Lab with proceeds supporting scholarships and the UCO School of Music.           

Lindblade, a faculty member since 2011, has performed both nationally and internationally in such halls as the Max M. Fisher Music Center in Detroit, Mich., and Vienna’s Schönbrunn Palace in Austria. Lindblade has performed in the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra, the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra and the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, among others.           

For this concert, Lindblade will perform works originally commissioned for the prestigious Michigan-based Verdehr Trio. The Verdehr Trio’s clarinetist Elsa Ludewig-Verdehr was Lindblade’s professor in school.           

Lindblade will perform as a part of Central’s Lupine Trio, which also includes violinist Hong Zhu and pianist Sallie Pollack.    

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling the UCO School of Music at 974-5004.  Admission is free for Central students, faculty and staff with a Central I.D. For a complete listing of UCO College of Fine Arts and Design events and performances, visit www.uco.edu/cfad/events.
