Three Campbellsville University music faculty members have been invited to perform at the National Flute Convention on Aug. 7-10 in Chicago, Ill.

Dr. Lisa McArthur, professor of music, will play flute. Dr. William Budai, associate professor of piano, will play piano and Saulo DeAlmeida, instructor in music, will perform on the cello.

They will perform "Trio, opus 86" by Nikolai Kapustin at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 8, in Chicago.

The public is invited to attend a send-off concert on Tuesday, Aug. 5, at 5 p.m. in Room 210 of the Gosser Fine Arts Center. The concert is free and open to the public.

The music professors were invited to perform based on an audio recording they submitted. About 3,000 flutists will attend the convention from all over the world. McArthur said the convention is the largest gathering of flutists in the world.

This is the 42nd annual convention. Its theme is "Perform, Inspire, Educate!"
