Come to a free hour-long concert to be held beginning at 6pm Thursday, May 20, in the Music Room located in the Wallace Student Center on the University of Wisconsin-Richland campus and you'll not only hear new music, you'll have the opportunity to meet and talk with the composer of one of the featured pieces.
The concert will feature a selection by University of Wisconsin-Richland student Emerson Aagaard entitled "2-2."
James Aagaard, UW-Richland music director said, "This will be a good opportunity for local persons to get a taste of what's currently going on in the field of electronic music."
"Vox Novus 60x60" is the title of the program, apt because the compositions are 60-seconds each and the program includes 60 pieces. In addition to hearing the music, guests will have the opportunity to hear from the composer and ask questions about his work, and the project.
According to their website, "Vox Novus produces and promotes new music. (The organization is) dedicated to contemporary music, the musicians who perform, and the composers that write the music of today. (Their mission) is to cultivate a music community and make their work available to the greater public."
The concert is sponsored by the UW-Richland Music Department. UW-Richland is located at 1200 Highway 14 West in Richland Center. For more information, call the campus at (608) 647-6186.
