FSU Student Kyla Nauman to Perform Livestreamed Senior Flute Recital

Frostburg State University’s Department of Music will present Kyla Nauman in a livestreamed senior flute recital on Friday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m. She will be accompanied by pianist Dr. Joseph Yungen and guest artists Cait Rund on the alto saxophone and Maggie Longerbeam on the flute.

Nauman will perform “Syrinx” by Claude Debussy, “Epitaphe de Jean Harlow” by Charles Koechlin, “Concerto in D Major” by Leopold Hofmann, “In Ireland” by Hamilton Harty and “La Gata – Milonga” by Carmen Marulanda.

“Syrinx” (1913) is a solo flute work that tells of the story of the nymph Syrinx being pursued by Pan. To escape, Syrinx transforms herself into the reeds, which Pan turns into the panpipe once he gives up on his chase.

“Epitaphe de Jean Harlow” (1937) was created in memory of actress Jean Harlow who died in 1937.

Hofmann’s earliest compositions date from the 1750s. “Concerto in D Major” was originally written for solo flute and orchestral accompaniment; however, in this rendition, the piano will be the accompaniment.

Harty was a church organist who later moved to London and became a well-known piano accompanist. He composed “In Ireland” in 1915.

“La Gata – Milonga” (2016) is from a set of flute duets inspired by the milonga, a musical genre that originated in Argentina.

Nauman studies under Dr. Eftihia Arkoudis at FSU. She is an active member of the National Association for Music Education and secretary of the American Choral Directors Association at FSU. She made the Dean’s List from the spring of 2018 to spring of 2019 and has received a music scholarship based on musical merit. Nauman anticipates graduating in spring 2021 with a bachelor’s in music education, then plans to become a high school or elementary school teacher. She is the daughter of Trina Nauman and Rich Nauman.
