     HAMMOND - Southeastern Louisiana University's Department of Fine and Performing Arts will present its first ever Faculty Chamber Recital on Nov. 26.

     Scheduled at 7:30 p.m. in Pottle Music Building Auditorium, "Musical Treasures for Winds, Piano and Voice," is the first concert in a new faculty series, said Kenneth Boulton, interim head of the Department of Fine and Performing Arts.

     "This is the first concert in our new Southeastern Faculty Chamber Series," Boulton said, "and it is designed to increase collaborative opportunities among our performance faculty, as well as expose our students to unique and fresh repertoire that is outside the realm of what they are accustomed to experiencing."

     The concert will feature Southeastern faculty Rachel Ciraldo, flute; Arisia Gilmore, horn; Jackie McIlwain, clarinet; Alissa Rowe, soprano; Scott Smith, oboe; Jerry Voorhees, bassoon; and Boulton, piano.

     The program includes "Quartet in F" by Gioacchino Rossini, "Six Cuban Dances," by Ignacio Cervantes, "As it Fell Upon a Day" by Aaron Copland and "Sextuor," by Francis Poulenc.
