The Verisimo Trio, a group from the University of Wyoming, is taking a break from performing in Wyoming cities and is coming to Boise State on Oct. 6. at part of The Guest Artist Recital series.
They will be performing in the Morrison Center Recital Hall from 7:30 to
Mike Winter, Boise State alumnus and chairman of Boise State College of Arts and Sciences community advisory board, invited the trio to perform at Boise State after seeing them perform in Wyoming.
“I was so impressed with the program and the playing,” Winter said. “The group has very unusual instrumentation, but given the popularity of the saxophone and flute in the grand scheme of things, I felt this would be a very worthwhile program to have at Boise State.”
The group, featuring Nicole Riner on flute, Scott Turpen on saxophone and Theresa Bogard on piano, has toured cities in Wyoming to perform and teach master classes.
Turpen is a Boise State music department graduate and is well-remembered by the faculty.
This will not be the first time the performers have been to Boise State.
Four years ago when the Student Union Building put on the Classic Performance Series, both Turpen and Bogard performed.
At 12:30 in the afternoon on Oct. 6, the group will be holding Master classes for saxophone, flute and piano players.
This is an opportunity for music students to learn from esteemed performers.
“It always helps a music student to get a lesson from someone different from time to time,” Winter said. “And these are great performers.”
Winter donated the fees to cover their travel expenses to fly from Wyoming to Boise. For more information on the event visit the Music Department’s website.
