On Thursday, March 27, the UTC Music Department presents a concert by Duo Pegasus, (Clarinetist Scott Wright and pianist Linda Halloin) at 8:00 PM in the Roland Hayes Concert Hall, UTC Fine Arts Center (corner of Vine and Palmetto St.). The performance will include the music for clarinet and piano by various composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. The concert is offered free of admission to the general public.
Duo Pegasus was created by Scott Wright and Linda Halloin in 1998 after having played a series of chamber music concerts together; since its creation they have performed in the US and internationally to great acclaim. The duo takes great delight in presenting “little known” works to their audiences in hopes of expanding the mainstream of programmable literature. In addition to their performing, Duo Pegasus passionately embraces and educational mission with frequent offerings of master classes, clinics and presentations to students of all ages.
Clarinetist Scott Wright is currently Assistant Professor of Clarinet at the University of Kentucky. He holds degrees in music education and a doctorate in clarinet performance from the University of Michigan and Arizona State. Wright has numerous performance credits with US and foreign orchestras and has recorded with Arlo Guthrie. He toured China in 2006 as a guest of the Beijing Conservatory of Music.
Pianist Linda Halloin was described by the Milwaukee Sentinal as “a dynamo of expressive energy, commanding a full range of technical and musical capabilities.” Ms. Halloin has taught at the Blair School of Music at Vanderbilt University and most recently at the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay. She brings a wealth of performance experience in solo piano, concerto, orchestral and chamber music, as well as jazz and big band.
In following their tradition of performing unfamiliar works, their program for UTC includes music by Leo Sowerby (20th Century American), John Ireland (20th Century English), Pierre Sancan (Contemporary French), Paquito D’Rivera (Contemporary Cuban) and Mike Mower (Contemporary English).
