LU Student Musicians Featured in Sunday WPR Broadcast

Three Lawrence University student musicians — pianists Marshall Cuffe and David Keep and saxophonist Sumner Truax — will be featured performers April 11 at 12:30 p.m. in the annual Neale-Silva Young Artist’s Winners’ Recital.

The recital, performed in the Wisconsin Union Theater in Madison, will be broadcast live statewide on the Classical Music Network of Wisconsin Public Radio and can be heard locally on WPNE, 89.3 FM.

Cuffe, Keep and Truax were named three of the five winners at the 2010 Neale-Silva Young Artist’s Competition conducted last month.

For Sunday’s recital, Cuffe will perform Bach’s “Chromatic Fantasy in D minor” and “Fantasy on Themes from ‘The Wizard of Oz’” by William Hirtz. Keep will play three movements from Alberto Ginastera’s “Sonata No. 1.” Truax will perform “Buku” by Jacob Ter Veldhuis and “Tableaux de ProvenceI” by Paule Maurice.
