Stetson University’s School of Music will present clarinetist Ashley Oliveto in recital on Sunday, Nov. 23, at 5:45 p.m. The performance will take place in Lee Chapel inside Elizabeth Hall, 421 North Woodland Blvd., DeLand. The recital is open to the public at no charge, and is being performed in partial fulfillment of a Bachelor of Music Education degree.
Oliveto, scholarship student of Lynn Musco, D.M., professor of clarinet, will present a program featuring repertoire from a variety of composers and time periods. The recital will open with the light and dance-like Canzonetta Op. 19 by Gabriel Pierne and will include Johannes Brahms’ Trio in A minor for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano Op. 114, and Abîme des Oiseaux from Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Concluding the program will be Graham Lyons’ Sonata for Clarinet and Piano. She will be joined by collaborative pianists Kristie Born, D.M.A., and Jeremy Vigil and cellist Marcus Jones.
A native of Billerica, Mass., Oliveto has been an active performer in many ensembles at Stetson University including the Symphonic Band, Symphony Orchestra and Clarinet Choir. In the summer of 2014, she was accepted to participate in Buffet Crampon USA’s Summer Clarinet Academy where she performed Claude Debussy’s Première Rhapsodie as well as studied with world-renowned clarinetists, Stanley Drucker and Andre Moisan. She is also a recipient of the Lynn Ann Musco Endowed Clarinet Scholarship and the William E. Duckwitz Talent Scholarship in recognition of her outstanding artistic accomplishments.
In addition to performances on and off the Stetson campus, Oliveto is an avid music educator. She has over 100 hours of observation and teaching experience in the Volusia County public schools. During the summers, she actively works with local high school bands teaching marching band and sectionals. Additionally for the past three summers, she has worked with George N. Parks Drum Major Academy where she teaches high school students how to be student leaders in their band programs.
Upon graduation in May 2015, Oliveto will continue her studies in clarinet performance at the graduate level.
