Flutist Susan Charlton, director of wind ensembles at Lafayette, and pianist Alexis Fisher, part-time instructor of music, will present works by Hummel, Dutilleux, and Bach noon Friday, Nov. 30, in room 123 of Lafayette’s Williams Center for the Arts.

The recital is free and open to the public. Dessert and beverages will be provided; lunch should be brought.

The faculty will play Grand Rondeau Brilliant, op.126, by Hummel; Sonatine by Dutilleux; and Sonata in Eb major BWV 1031 by Bach.

The pair last teamed up for a recital on Nov. 5, 2000, at Lafayette.

“As always, we enjoyed doing the program together and immediately looked forward to the next opportunity to perform,” says Fisher. “Susan and I have worked together for many years, so the intricacies of ensemble playing fall into place very easily. It is a joy to rehearse and perform with Susan.”

Fisher earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music at the Manhattan School of Music. She also attended Indiana University. Fisher has taught at Santa Clara University and San Jose City College in California. She is active as a soloist and collaborative pianist. Fisher also will perform a free solo recital 8 p.m. Thursday, April 18, 2002, in the Williams Center auditorium.

Charlton earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in fine arts at the University of Wisconsin. She has played the flute with many notable ensembles, including the American Wind Symphony, the Waterloo Festival Orchestra, the Milwaukee New Music Ensemble, and the Manhattan Wind Quintet. She maintains an active recital/performance schedule.
