(March 20, 2014) -- The UTSA Department of Music will present clarinetist Shannon Scott and flutist Leonard Garrison for a duo concert performance at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 21 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus. Admission is free and open to the public.
The duo began performing together in 1988, and as 16-year members of the Tulsa Philharmonic, gave concert performances throughout Oklahoma. In 2006, the pair moved to Idaho and perform throughout the Pacific Northwest.
They have been featured at several national conventions including the National Flute Association, College Music Society and the National Association of Wind and Percussion Instructors.
Their two CDs, "Perennials" and "Barn Dances," received critical acclaim and were recognized by The Instrumentalist for bringing music to life and setting the bar high for outstanding chamber music performance.
Currently, Scott serves as an instructor of clarinet and teaches a course on the History of Music. Additionally, she performs as a clarinetist in the Solstice Woodwind Quintet at the Washington State University School of Music. In the summertime, she teaches and performs as principal clarinetist of the Eastern Music Festival in North Carolina.
Garrison is an associate professor of flute and aural skills at the University of Idaho. He also is a flutist in the Northwest Wind Quintet, principal flute of the Walla Walla Symphony and former chair of the National Flute Association. His summers are spent teaching and performing at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan and the Red Lodge Music Festival in Montana.

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.
At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.
Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.
With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.
Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through research and discovery, teaching and learning, community engagement and public service. As an institution of access and excellence, UTSA embraces multicultural traditions and serves as a center for intellectual and creative resources as well as a catalyst for socioeconomic development and the commercialization of intellectual property - for Texas, the nation and the world.
To be a premier public research university, providing access to educational excellence and preparing citizen leaders for the global environment.
We encourage an environment of dialogue and discovery, where integrity, excellence, inclusiveness, respect, collaboration and innovation are fostered.
