Music Guaranteed Fresh at Composers Concert

Composing music alone in a room is only part of the process that HSU composition students experience—they also hear their compositions performed in public. That public in turn gets to hear something completely new.

Describing the works to be presented for the first time in Fulkerson Hall on November 14, composition professor J. Brian Post said, “These works will contain influences from American folk music, jazz, rock and roll, film scores and European Art music from Vivaldi's time to the present.”

Composers experimenting with new and more established compositional techniques and instrumentation include James Puzey, Adolpho Acuna and John Garritano.

The Composers Concert, featuring new compositions by faculty as well as students, takes the Fulkerson Recital Hall stage on Saturday November 14 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $7 general, $3 students/seniors, from the HSU Ticket Office (826-3928) or at the door. Free to HSU students with ID.
