Student composers to premiere original works Nov. 9

November 05, 2016

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State School of Music will present "Musica Nova" at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9, in Esber Recital Hall. Admission is free.

This unique concert features 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 oddities of the natural world will not be in evidence. Instead, students of the School of Music will perform their own amazing feats — world premieres of new works by student composers never before heard by human ears!

"Musica Nova" is coordinated by Paul Barsom, Penn State composition professor.
