Faculty reed trio set to perform in Walker

On March 14 at 8 p.m. in Walker Recital Hall, the D’Angelo Department of Music will present its first Faculty Recital Series performance of the spring semester.
The evening’s performance will be by the Reed’m and Weep Trio, a group composed of Rebecca Wunch on clarinet, Hilary Philipp on oboe and Carolyn Borland on bassoon.
The group has been in existence for eight years.
Wunch mentions that all three of the members were students at McDowell High School around the same time and participated in the music program there, but that she cannot remember exactly how the group came about.
Regardless, over the past eight years, the group has played at weddings, community events and at other venues, for example Vivaldi in the Vineyard and at Studio Q.
On their upcoming program will be pieces by Gordon Jacobs, Charles Huguenin, Jacques Ibert, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Sebastian Bach and François Couperin.
The group tries to add a new piece to their repertoire every time they play a gig, and Wunch said, “So, you can imagine that after eight-plus years of playing together, we have accumulated a number of pieces.”
The recital has no theme, with Wunch describing the sections on the program as the group’s “favorite classical pieces from our library.”
As with all faculty recitals, the performance will be free and open to the public.
