HATTIESBURG -Pianist Elizabeth Moak will present her first faculty solo recital at The University of Southern Mississippi at 2:30 p.m. Jan. 30 in Marsh Auditorium. Having joined the faculty of the School of Music in August 2004, her program will include compositions by Reinken, Haydn, Chopin, Debussy and American composer Judith Lang Zaimont. Admission is free and open to the public

Her recent performances include a tour of France, including the Centre Acanthes/Avignon Festival and St. Lazare Cathedral of Autun, where she was hailed for her "astounding colors" and "powerful and spirited interpretation" (Le Journal de Saône-et-Loire). Appearing regularly as soloist in recitals and with orchestras, Moak has performed throughout the United States and Europe. Winner of the Mu Phi Epsilon International Competition and several national competitions, including the National Federation of Music Clubs Biennial Auditions, she has been noted for her "sensitivity" and "generous imagination" (La Suisse, Geneva, Switzerland).

Moak previously taught at Millsaps College, where she was honored with the "Outstanding Young Faculty Award" in 2001. In 2003, she received a D.M.A. from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University.
