Composers Face the Music at HSU

Students pursuing a degree in Composition at HSU face the music of a live audience on Friday, April 2 in Fulkerson Recital Hall.

The audience in turn gets to hear music no one has heard before. “These works contain influences from American folk music, jazz, rock & roll, film scores and European art music from Vivaldi’s time to the present,” said composition teacher, composer and HSU Music professor Brian Post.

The compositions include experimental approaches as well as new takes on older musical styles. Among the student composers are Mark Jensen, Davina Warner, John Garritano and Adolpho Acuna. Performers include HSU faculty and staff as well as students.

The spring Composers Concert is performed on Friday, April 2 at 8 p.m. in the Fulkerson Recital Hall on the HSU campus in Arcata. Tickets are $7 general, $3 students/seniors, from the HSU Ticket Office (826-3928) or at the door. Free to HSU students with ID. Produced by the HSU Department of Music.
