Madsen to Perform in FSU Faculty Artist Series
Frostburg State University’s Department of Music will host a faculty artist series instrumental recital featuring Dr. Emily Madsen on Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 8 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. Madsen will be accompanied by pianist Dr. James DeWire and guitarist Patrick Sise. This performance is free and open to the public.
During her performance, Madsen, who teaches oboe and bassoon at FSU, will play the oboe and the English horn in works by C.P.E. Bach, Piazzolla, Pasculli, Kirsch and Schubert.
Madsen earned a Master of Music degree in oboe performance from the Yale School of Music in 2004 and completed a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Maryland in May 2010. She played the oboe and English horn with the U.S. Army Field band from 2004 to 2007. In the Army Field Band, she performed as a soloist with the concert band and as a clinician with the Woodwind Ambassadors Quintet. In 2007, Madsen began performing in the U.S. Naval Academy band as principal oboist of the concert band. She has been favorably reviewed by the Baltimore Sun and The Washington Post as a solo performer with contemporary music groups Mobtown Modern and Tempo.
DeWire is a frequent solo performer and member of the West Shore Trio, has appeared up and down the Eastern Seaboard and is becoming known for his dynamic interpretations of 20th-century works and his “old world flair.” He is a collaborative pianist and music lecturer for the Department of Music at FSU.
Sise also works in the Department of Music at FSU as a guitar instructor and music lecturer. He teaches at the Music and Arts Center in Bowie, Md., and for the Face to Face guitar program, which is an organization that provides free lessons to Baltimore’s inner-city elementary school students.
