Musical instruments
A Moldovan nai (panflute) will be featured along with clarinet, piano and flute quartet Saturday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the UW Fine Arts concert hall.

The University of Wyoming Department of Music will host a free evening of music for Moldovan nai (panflute), clarinet, piano and flute quartet Saturday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts concert hall.

UW Professor Rod Garnett recently returned from living in Chişinau, Moldova where he studied nai with Professor Ion Negura.

"Nai, the Moldovan panflute, is an important instrument in Romania and Moldova where it performs in a wide variety of musical styles and settings," Garnett says. "It is an essential part of folklore ensembles, wedding bands and popular music and is often combined with clarinet and piano."

The program will feature compositions of Bohuslav Martinu, Samuel Barber, James Last, Vasile Lovu, Gheoghe Zamfir and Eugene Bozza, and Moldovan folklore melodies, English and Moldovan hymns arranged by Lisa Rickard, Blake McGee and Garnett.

The musicians scheduled to perform Saturday are Garnett with the Moldovan nai; Rickard and Rubia Cristina Souza Santos on the piano; McGee on the clarinet; and the UW Flute Quartet: Jeong-Uk Kang, Kyung a Choi, Brittany Moe and Rebecca Eggli.
