Concert of new music by Penn State student, faculty composers set for March 26

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State School of Music will present Musica Nova, a unique concert of newly composed music, at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 26, in Esber Recital Hall at University Park. The program includes music written for a wide variety of media, including winds, brass, strings, percussion, piano, recorded audio and more. Admission is free.

Lions, tigers, dancing bears, impossible feats of strength, acts of strange magical powers, displays of exotic and rare specimens from the far corners of the globe, and frightening and shocking oddities of the natural world will not be in evidence. Instead, students and faculty of the School of Music will perform dazzling feats of their own — world premieres of new compositions, never before heard by human ears!

Musica Nova is coordinated by Penn State composition faculty member Paul Barsom.
