The Montana State University student woodwind ensembles will perform at a free spring concert set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 16, in Reynolds Recital Hall.

The MSU Flute Choir, conducted by Karen Leech, will be featured. The choir will perform "Art Gallery Miniatures," a new work by MSU composer Alan Leech.

"This work was inspired by the flute choir needing to rehearse weekly next door in the Copeland Art Gallery because of lack of space in the music building," Leech said. "The Flute Choir was welcomed warmly by the art department and that collaboration inspired this new work."

MSU Clarinet Choir, which is made up of students from all disciplines, is also on the program. The choir will play works by Robert Schumann and Jules Massenet. The Clarinet Choir is coached by Mary Ann Jacobson, but will be directed on Friday by guest conductor, Marshall Erickson.

The program will also feature the MSU Woodwind Quintet, an ensemble of the top student players of woodwind instruments and French horn. The Woodwind Quintet will play works by Agay, Ravel, Bach and Scott Joplin.

Reynolds Recital Hall is located on 11th Avenue, across from the Duck Pond.
