Woodwind concerts planned for coming week at Wayland

Two recitals slated for April 1 and 4 will round out the special woodwind series organized by the music department at Wayland Baptist University. Both are free to the public.

Dr. Sandra Mosteller, assistant professor of music, will present her first faculty recital on the clarinet on April 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Harral Auditorium. Dr. Gary Belshaw, assistant professor of piano pedagogy, will accompany Mosteller on the piano.

Mosteller is in her first year on the faculty at Wayland, coming to the university from doctoral studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She holds a master's degree in clarinet performance from Arizona State University and a master's and bachelor's degree in music education from Truman State University.

A native of Iowa, Mosteller performs as a soloist, orchestral and chamber musician, including recitals in Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama, Arizona and Missouri. She has performed works by several composers and is active as a private teacher and clinician. She has also published articles in two music journals and previously taught at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Radford University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Flutist Kathryn Scarbrough will present a recital on April 4 at 7:30 p.m. in Harral Auditorium. Belshaw will accompany on piano and Mosteller will assist on the clarinet.

Scarbrough is currently band director at Fredericksburg (Va.) Christian Upper Elementary/Middle School and has a private flute/music theory studio. She holds a master's degree from Arizona State University and a bachelor's degree from Towson State University.

Co-founder of the Baltimore-based flute and harp duo "Harp Shadows and Silver Sounds," Scarbrough has served as principal flutist in the Concert Band and Ceremonial Band of the United States Marine Corps based in Quantico, Va.

She was honored with a Full Regents Scholarship at Arizona State and was named "Most Outstanding Graduate in Music" at Towson State.
