The UGA Hugh Hodgson School of Music will host two Midwestern musical talents when Robert White and Helen Lukan perform in Edge Recital Hall on Tuesday, March 23, at 11:15 a.m.

White, assistant professor of trumpet at Western Michigan University, is a member of the Western Brass Quintet – one of the United States’ oldest established professional brass chamber ensembles. White maintains an active career as an orchestral, chamber, commercial, and solo trumpeter and has played with numerous notable ensembles, including the Detroit, Grand Rapids and Milwaukee Symphonies.

Lukan is well regarded as a versatile collaborative pianist and harpsichordist throughout west Michigan and Chicagoland and is gaining national notice as a respected collaborator with such groups as the Boston Brass and the Enso String Quartet.

Their program highlights trumpet and piano works from the mid- to late-20th century with pieces from George Antheil, Robert Suderburg and Joseph Turrin.

This special performance is presented admission-free and open to the public.
