Dr. Kristin Polk, assistant professor of music at Louisiana Tech, will present the second concert of this year’s Faculty Concert Series on Thursday, Jan. 22 in Howard Auditorium, Center for the Performing Arts.

Polk will offer a diversified program of classical and contemporary literature on three instruments, including the oboe, flute and English horn. Featured pieces include Handel’s F Major Sonata for Flute, Hamilton Harty’s fiercely passionate ‘In Ireland’ and Robert Schumann’s ‘Adagio and Allegro.’

Polk’s husband, trombonist Benjamin Polk, will join her for Mark Scott’s ‘September Canticles.’ Polk will be accompanied by Dr. Daniel Immel, assistant professor of music.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Polk teaches music appreciation, music technology and music theory. Before arriving at Tech, Polk served as the oboe teaching fellow for two years at the University of North Texas. She was a featured soloist with the North Texas Wind Symphony in April 2007 and was an original member of the Lone Star Wind Orchestra. Polk has performed with the Shreveport Symphony, the San Angelo Symphony Orchestra, the Monroe Symphony and the South Arkansas Symphony.
