Northwest Missouri State University faculty members Dr. William Richardson and Dr. Jiwon Choi will present a Labor Day faculty trumpet recital at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 5, in the Charles Johnson Theater at the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building.   

The recital is free and open to the public.

Richardson and Choi will share the stage with Northwest Assistant Professor of Music Robert Pippin on trombone and a trumpet ensemble of Northwest alumni.

“We are really excited for this performance,” Richardson said. “This concert features a variety of styles and musical moods. We have a substantial number of alumni trumpet players joining us to play a special arrangement of Leroy Anderson’s ‘Bugler’s Holiday,’ and I’m confident that audiences will enjoy the concert experience.”

A member of the St. Joseph Symphony and the Bell Tower Brass, Richardson serves as professor of music and assistant department chair at Northwest. He teaches trumpet, directs the Northwest Jazz Ensemble and Jazz Combo, and teaches various music courses.

Choi joined the Northwest music faculty this fall as a staff accompanist. Prior to coming to Northwest, she served a graduate teaching assistantship at the University of Kansas and was a piano faculty member at the University of Kansas Community Music School. She earned a doctor of music arts in piano performance and pedagogy from the University of Kansas, a master’s degree in piano performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University and a bachelor’s in piano performance from Dong-A University in Pusan, South Korea.
