HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University's Department of Fine and Performing Arts will present "Musical Treasures for Winds and More," on Oct. 20. Scheduled in Pottle Auditorium at 7:30 p.m., the free concert is part of the Southeastern Faculty Chamber Series.

The concert will feature the Southeastern woodwind faculty. A quartet of Suzanne Buerkle (flute), Everette Smith (oboe), Victor Drescher (clarinet), and Jerry Voorhees (bassoon) will perform several selections of rarely performed woodwind quartet music. Selections include an arrangement of Mozart's "Divertimento, K251," Cavalev's "Suite," Prokofiev's "Fleeting Moments," and Karl Goepfart's "Quartet, Op. 93."

"The woodwind faculty is excited to share these rarely heard pieces of chamber music with the Southeastern community in a free concert," Drescher said.

In addition to the faculty woodwind quartet, Saxophone Professor Kimberly Gedde will perform an arrangement of Astor Piazolla's "Four Seasons" with friends Susannah Montandon (cello) and Mary Bresowar (piano).
