Music composition students at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh will present new music in concert Friday, Nov. 30.
Compositions include works for clarinet, prepared marimba, trumpet, oboe, violin, alto saxophone, voice, cello and piano. The music will feature a variety of compositional techniques; such as, composing with a limited pitch class, using extended instrument technique, and setting a text to a melody for voice.
The concert will be held at 7 p.m. in the Music Hall of the Arts and Communications building on campus.
“The student composer group, Oshkosh Collegiate Composers, is new to campus, and we are in our second year as a regularly performing group on the music department calendar of events,” said Grace Hennig, UW Oshkosh student and president of the Oshkosh Collegiate Composers. “We hope to grow our audience by drawing in people from both the campus community and the greater Oshkosh area – people who are curious about what we do and people who are eager to hear new music.”
The concert is free and open to the public.
