The University of Southern Mississippi School of Music presents a Guest Artist Series recital featuring Kristin Leitterman, oboe, and Emily Trapp Jenkins, piano, on Sunday, Oct. 28. This free event will take place at 6 p.m. in Marsh Auditorium on the Hattiesburg campus.

The program for this recital will feature two multi-movement song cycles that double as world premieres: Out of Darkness by Whitney E. George and Tattvamasi by Michael-Thomas Foumai. Between the two song cycles is Lyle Davidson’s Bird of Paradise, a piece written for solo oboe.

“These works draw inspiration from Leela, the Divine Play, which highlights how humans are spiritual beings having a material experience,” said Dr. Kristin Leitterman. “These songs consider the connections of all things, arising from Darkness – the unknown creative force, primordial and transformative – as music spirals into life.”

Dr. Kristin Leitterman is currently the Instructor of Oboe at Arkansas State University, where she also specializes in Aural Theory, Double Reed Techniques, and coaching small chamber ensembles.
