Titled, “Russian Composers at the Piano,” the concert will be held at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 20, in the concert hall of the music/mass communication building.

Mussorgsky's “Pictures at an Exhibition” will be featured, and the concert also will include music by Skryabin, Rachmaninov and Prokofiev.
The program will showcase the enormous range of imagination these composers brought to their keyboard music, from Skryabin's disturbing “Preludes, op. 74,” one of the last works completed by this visionary composer, to Prokofiev's powerful and dramatic “Sonata No. 7,” a work written during World War II that reflects the violence of the time.
Wood was the prizewinner of the 1984 Stroud Festival International Competition in Great Britain and was named the 1985 Distinguished

Composer of the Year by the Music Teacher's National Association. He was awarded APSU's prestigious Richard M. Hawkins Award for scholarship and creativity in 1988.

Most recently, Wood recorded Francis Poulenc's “Aubade” with the APSU Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Gregory Wolynec.
The Oct. 20 concert is free and open to the public.
