The second concert of the 2021-2022 season is titled “Altered Avenues.” The pieces on this concert, all written by UNL students, showcase many musical styles and genres hat are of interest to the composition area.
“Altered Avenues” begins with three pieces for the Ica Jazz Sextet, a UNL student combo whose members include several composers. Ica’s set will be followed by stylistically diverse pieces, including a trumpet solo accompanied by electronics, a string quartet and a woodwind quintet.
Finally, the program will conclude with the debut performance of Atonal Avenues, an experimental chamber ensemble focusing on improvisations.
“Every composer has something to convey through their music, and we are excited to share these pieces with you all,” said graduate student John David Cope. “Please join us for an unforgettable night that will show you just how many ‘Altered Avenues’ the UNL composition studio takes.”
