Duo Montagnard, a guitar-saxophone duo, will visit Utah State University’s  Department of Music to conduct guitar and saxophone clinics during the week Jan. 13-17. A concert performance is also planned Friday, Jan. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in FAC 214 of the Chase Fine Arts Center. The concert is free and open to the public.


Duo Montagnard was formed in 2002 and includes Matthew Slotkin, director of the guitar program at Bloomsburg University (Penn.), and Joseph Murphy, saxophone professor at Mansfield University (Penn.). They have performed more than 200 concerts in 48 states, 15 countries and five continents.


“We are pleased to have this dynamic ensemble visit our campus to perform for our community and work with our students,” said Jon Gudmundson, associate professor of saxophone in the Caine College of the Arts.


Slotkin is an acclaimed performer, teacher and scholar. He has performed works of numerous composers, including John Anthony Lennon, Scott Lindroth and John Orfe. In addition to Duo Montagnard, he also performs with Dez Cordas, the Metropolis Ensemble and the Mallarmé Chamber Players.


Murphy has received a Fulbright Award for study in Bordeaux, France, where he also received a Premier Prix. He has premiered more than 40 new works and is a clinician for the Selmer Corporation.
