Mankato and New Ulm area natives Lindsay Schultz and Justin Schramm will be featured in solo student recitals in Jussi Bjorling Recital Hall on the Gustavus Adolphus College campus this weekend. Schultz, a Good Thunder native and horn player, will present her senior recital Saturday, March 17 at 1:30 p.m. Schramm, a native of Milwaukee and former Martin Luther College student, follows with his senior percussion recital at 7:30 p.m. Both recitals are free and open to the public.

Lindsay Schultz is a 2003 graduate of Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial High School and the daughter of David and Jennifer Schultz of Good Thunder. She is a music major who first studied with her father and now studies with Matt Wilson at Gustavus. Lindsay is a recipient of the Jussi Bjorling Music Scholarship and is a member of the Gustavus Symphony and Wind Orchestras.

Ms. Schultz opens her 1:30 recital with a solo work by J. S. Bach, the Suite I for Unaccompanied ‘Cello. She will then be joined by pianist Nathan Kennedy to present the Fantasiestucke, Op. 73 by Robert Schumann and Reinhold Gliere’s Concerto in Bb Major, Op. 91, to close out the first half of the recital. Following a short intermission, she will return to the stage with her father, hornist David Schultz, to perform the three-movement Konzert Es-dur Fur 2 Horner by Joseph Haydn.

Justin Schramm graduated from Kettle Morain High School in Jackson, Wisconsin and began his undergratuate work at New Ulm’s Martin Luther College. He transferred to Gustavus in 2005 to complete his studies in music education. He is a member of the Gustavus Wind and Symphony Orchestras and the Gustavus Percussion Ensemble. He opens his 7:30 recital with Wes Schmandt’s Opus One on snare drum assisted by Josh Wahlstrom on bass drum and continues with Paul Sarcich’s Three Concert Pieces for Timpani. Following a set change, Schramm returns to present three works for marimba and piano; Giles by Evelyn Glennie; a world premiere of Michele Gillman’s And in the Stillness; and Concertino for Marimba by Paul Creston. He concludes the program with a work for solo marimba by Minoru Miki, the Marimba Spiritual.
