The Delta State University Department of Music will present guest artist Wayne Linehan, trumpeter with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra and Dr. Douglas Mark, assistant professor of low brass, in a faculty recital on Tuesday, February 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Bologna Performing Arts Center.
Mark and Linehan will be joined by Dr. Jung-Won Shin, associate professor of piano.
The program, entitled “A Brass Menagerie,” will feature compositions written for trumpet, trombone and piano. The first selection on the program comes from the early Italian Baroque period. The work is entitled “Canzon La Salvoldi a 2” and was composed by Giovanni Battista Riccio. The rest of the recital showcases selections by contemporary American composers. The second work of the concert is Boris Blacher’s seven movement “Divertimento” for trombone, trumpet and piano. Each movement of the work provides the listener with a different texture. The next work is “Post Cards,” for trombone, cornet and piano, by Dexter Morrill. The inspiration for the piece was drawn from a variety of 19th century American civil war tunes, which are incorporated throughout the five movements of the work.
The second half of the performance will include selected movements from David Borden’s “Dialogues” for trombone and trumpet. The concert will conclude with Eric Ewazen’s four movement work entitled “An Elizabethan Songbook.”
Linehan holds degrees from The State University College at Fredonia, New York (Bachelor of Music in Education) and the State University of New York at Buffalo (Master of Fine Arts in Trumpet Performance), and is currently working on his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Southern Mississippi. Mr. Linehan has been an active performer since securing the position of Second Trumpet with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra in 1983, performing with Capital Brass, MSO Brass Quintet, Mississippi Opera, Meridian Symphony Orchestra, Alabama Symphony Orchestra, and the International Ballet Competition Orchestra.

Before moving to Jackson, Wayne played with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra (extra trumpet), the Buffalo Pops Orchestra (principal trumpet), Johnny Mathis (lead trumpet), and the New York production of Camelot with Richard Harris (principal trumpet). Mr. Linehan is also an adjunct professor of music at Mississippi College where he teaches brass methods and trumpet lessons, and directs the Jazz Ensemble.
Linehan’s conducting experience has been diverse. He organized and conducted the Jackson Trumpet Ensemble and the Mississippi Brass Choir, he has been a band director at the college, high school and junior high levels for an aggregate 13 years, and he conducted a professional orchestra made up of MSO personnel for St. James Episcopal Church’s celebration of Epiphany “Baroque by Candlelight” for two years. Wayne conducts the Mississippi College Jazz Ensemble and has been Music Director and Conductor of the Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra since 2001.
