The CWU Music Department will welcome international horn soloist and Grammy-award winning chamber musician, Andrew Pelletier for a guest recital on Thursday, February 21, 2019, at 7:00 pm in the McIntyre Music Building Recital Hall.  Pelletier is current president of the International Horn Society, and has performed on five continents.  He was the First Prize winner of the 1997 and 2001 American Horn Competitions.  He currently serves as principal horn of the Michigan Opera Theatre and is professor of horn at Bowling Green State University.  Of his playing, the Los Angeles Times wrote, “gleaming, handsome playing. Pelletier is a soloist who seems capable of anything on his instrument.” Fanfare Magazine called him “Phenomenal…undeniably in tune with what he plays” and the American Record Guide has praised his “full sound and playing with authority and imagination.”   Pelletier’s recital program will include works by Samuel Adler, Arnold Cooke, Halsey Stevens, Charles Gounod, and Verne Reynolds.  He will also work with CWU students earlier in the day.  This concert is free and open to the public.  For more information, contact Jeffrey Snedeker at 963-1226 or snedeker@cwu.edu.
