Guests Artists to Perform at JSU:
Saxophone, Piano, and a World Premiere

On Tuesday, April 1, the David L. Walters Music Department at Jacksonville State University will proudly present alto saxophonist Lemuel Bardeguez and pianist Christy D’Ambrosio in concert. The recital will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Mason Hall Performance Center on campus. Admission is free to the public and all are welcome to attend.

Concert saxophonist Lemuel Bardeguez is an active recitalist, studio musician, music educator, clinician and adjudicator. He taught in the Oklahoma public schools system until 2000 and served as adjunct saxophone instructor on the music faculty of Oklahoma State University from 1998 until 2007. Since then he has been shaping the artistic life of the state of Oklahoma through his position as Community Arts Director for the Oklahoma Arts Council.

Pianist Christy D’Ambrosio received her master’s degree in piano from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, where she was a student of Mr. Frank Weinstock. She has performed extensively in both solo and chamber capacities in Ohio, Oklahoma, Missouri, Georgia, and Alabama and currently serves as accompanist for Jacksonville State University choirs. Credentialed in the Suzuki method, Christy maintains a private studio in her home in Jacksonville, Alabama.

The artists will perform together as well as presenting solo pieces individually. The varied program will include works by Johannes Brahms, William Grant Still, Nikola Resanovik, Victor Morosco, and a world premiere by JSU composition professor Mike D’Ambrosio. His Fantasy in Six Continuous Movements was co-commissioned by Lemuel Bardeguez and the Delta Tau Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia at Oklahoma State University.
