Leech's recital will be his last at MSU before his retirement from teaching in May. He will perform on the bassoon, soprano and alto saxophones. Two of Leech's compositions will be performed during the "Capstone Recital," in addition to works by Gary Schocker, Paul Creston, Alec Wilder, and Michael Garson.
Leech will be joined in two pieces by his wife, Karen, MSU flute professor. Laurel Yost, MSU piano professor, will perform with the two of them.
Leech has been teaching music at MSU since coming to Bozeman in 1972. He became interim department head in 2008. Recently, the MUS Board of Regents approved the change of name of the department to the MSU School of Music.
Leech's concert is sponsored by the MSU School of Music, and the Association of Retired Faculty.
