Flute students in the studio of Montana State University professor Karen Leech will present a free recital at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 15, in Reynolds Recital Hall.

Featured pieces include Georges Enesco's romantic "Cantabile and Presto," contemporary flutist Rhonda Larson's "The Gift," and the "Sonata for Flute and Piano" by Paul Hindemith.

Also included will be Ernest Bloch's "Suite Modale" and a piece by Russ Newbury, former Bozeman High School band director, "Sonata No. 1" for flute and piano.

The MSU Flute Choir will also be featured, playing a chamber music piece by Beethoven and a flute choir piece by Oregon composer Phyllis Louke, "As Eagles Flew."

This will be the last student flute recital under the direction of Karen Leech, who will retire from MSU next month after serving the music department for 39 years.

Reynolds Recital Hall is located in the music building, Howard Hall, which is across the street from the Duck Pond.
