Hosted by the Coca-Cola Space Sience Center.

Tue, Mar 3, 2020

Our March MUTD program, entitled Swarms of Sound will feature performances by Schwob faculty, students and alumni, all of whom bring distinctive artistry to their performances. First up is Dr. Katrin Meidell, Schwob professor of viola playing Max Reger’s haunting Viola Suite No. 3. This will be followed by two works for our Schwob Percussion Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Paul Vaillancourt: Philip Glass’s Madeira River and Kevin Bobo’s Swarm. Both pieces have exotic sounds from around the world and offer our percussionists a chance to showcase their tremendous talent. We will conclude with pianist Alexey Truscheckin, recent prize winner of both the Grieg and Los Angeles Piano Competitions, performing Chopin’s Nocturne, Op, 27, and his famous Waltz in Ab Major – both incredibly demanding works, but played by one of the great pianists of his generation! All visual designs for this program will be created by internationally renowned video artist Puspa Lohemeyer, in residence at CSU and whose work was just featured in a retrospective at the Tucson Museum. Reception at 5pm with wine and cheese, and 45 minute concert at 5:37pm!
