Five members of Lee University’s faculty will perform a concert on Monday at 7:30 p.m., in Squires Recital Hall, located in Lee’s Humanities Center.

Members of the wind quintet are Eric Anderson, bassoon; Robert Burks, oboe; Peter Cain, clarinet; Kristin Holritz, flute; and Gordon James, horn.

The concert will include Samuel Barber’s “Summer Music,” Kenji Bunch’s “Changes of Phase,” and August Klughardt’s “Quintet.”

Anderson has been principal bassoonist of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera Orchestra, and bassoonist of the CSO Wind Quintet since 1996. He attended the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, where he received a bachelor of music degree and the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University for postgraduate work where he studied with Benjamin Kamins. He has performed with the Florida Orchestra, the Virginia Symphony, the Bergen (Norway) Philharmonic Orchestra and the New Hampshire Music Festival.

Burks joined the CSO as principal oboist in 1981. He studied at the St. Louis Conservatory of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Music before performing with the Columbus Symphony and the Honolulu Symphony. He has performed numerous times with the Atlanta Symphony, at numerous music festivals, and has toured Europe twice.

Burks has taught oboe for Cadek Conservatory at UTC, University of the South, Lee University, Bryan College, Covenant College, and Southern Adventist University. In addition to oboe, he also plays ukulele, piano, clarinet, saxophone, trombone, and violin.

Cain is the third bass clarinet for the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. He is also the clarinet professor at Lee and was previously acting principal clarinet of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. Cain has attended Vanderbilt University, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, where he received his doctor of musical arts degree.

He has appeared as a soloist with the Knoxville Symphony, performed with the Paloma Wind Quintet at the 2010 International Double Reed Society conference, and was a soloist with the CCM Chamber Players at the 2009 Midwest Clinic in Chicago.

She has also appeared with the University of North Carolina School of the Arts Symphony Orchestra and the University of Georgia Symphony Orchestra. She is a winner of the Atlanta Flute Club Young Artist Competition and a third prize recipient in the MidSouth Flute Festival Young Artist Competition.
