Hattiesburg– The University of Southern Mississippi School of Music will host its first guest recital of the new academic year Oct. 6 with saxophonist Wildy Zumwalt, a professor of saxophone at the State University of New York at Fredonia.

His residency visit Oct. 4-6 will include a master class Oct. 4 for students. He is a guest of the Southern Miss saxophone studio, under the direction of professor Dr. Lawrence Gwozdz.

“When I first met him, Wildy was an undergraduate at West Texas State University,” Gwozdz said. “He flew into New Orleans in order to get a ride to a saxophone workshop at Louisville (Ky.) in 1986. We have remained in contact since that visit.”

Zumwalt went on to complete a Master of Music at the University of Michigan and a doctorate from Florida State University. After serving as saxophone instructor at Northern Arizona University for several years, he was appointed to his current position at Fredonia—an institution from which Gwozdz graduated.

Assisted by pianists Lois Leventhal and Sunhee Beak, Zumwalt will offer his 7:30 p.m. recital at the Mannoni Performing Arts Center. His program includes works by von Borck, Knorr, Bozza, Rorem, Lefanu, and Terzakis.

He will team with Gwozdz in the duo Dialog I Krakowiak, written by former Southern Miss faculty member Michael Kimber. Admission is free.
