Joe Nibley, who has served on the faculty of the University of South Alabama as an adjunct professor of trumpet, will present a Guest Faculty Trumpet Recital on Tuesday, February 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center. The concert in its entirety features music composed by living composers. Of particular note is a new work written specifically for Nibley by renowned composer James Stephenson, a work that came about as part of Nibley's doctoral research on the process of music commissions. Stephenson's Sonata No. 2 is a four-movement work that explores the human experience of grief and growth, culminating in its final movement, "Tranquility," which is representative of the will to move on in hopes for a brighter future.

Nibley's presentation at USA is part of a recital series in which he discusses his experiences working with Stephenson and the process and conception of Sonata No. 2. Presentations thus far have been given at several universities around the country.
