New music by Penn State composers to debut March 21

March 16, 2016

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State School of Music will present "Musica Nova" at 8 p.m. on Monday, March 21, in Esber Recital Hall. Admission is free.

This unique concert will feature newly composed music for a wide variety of media, including winds, brass, strings, percussion, piano, recorded audio and more. 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 curiosities 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 premiers of new compositions, never before heard by human ears!

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