Dr. Kathryn Fouse, Professor of Music and Associate Dean for the Division of Music in Samford's School of the Arts, will present a piano recital this Thursday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. in Brock Recital Hall.

Fouse maintains an active career as a virtuoso pianist and a professional accompanist. In addition to her solo performances, she has collaborated with such artists as Timofei Dokschidzer, Edward H. Tarr, David Bilger, Ronald Barron, James Thompson, Vincent diMartino, Leonard Candelaria, Andrei Ikov, Steven Mead, and Dale Underwood.  She has served as staff accompanist for many international competitions and festivals including conferences of the International Trumpet Guild; the North American Saxophone Alliance; the European Trumpet Days; the Moscow International Trumpet Competition and Festival; and the prestigious ARD International Trumpet Competition in Munich, Germany.  In 1996, Dr. Fouse was awarded the Marian Bowker Davidson Accompanying Award by Mu Phi Epsilon to travel to Saratov, Russia to participate in the first Vassily Brandt International Trumpet Solo Competition and Festival.

Fouse's expertise in American piano music of the 20th century has resulted in lecture-recitals at such prestigious institutions as the University of Illinois, Baylor University, the Dallas Art Museum, Gothenburg University and the Norwegian State Academy of Music.
