Works by student composers at the University of Nebraska at Kearney will be featured in a recital at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 27, in the Fine Arts Recital Hall.
According to Dr. Darleen Mitchell, UNK assistant professor of music and performing arts, the recital will feature works by student composers currently enrolled in the composition seminar class she teaches.
Students whose works will be performed in the Tuesday recital include: Mark Musil, a composition and vocal performance major from Ord; Dan Korensky, a composition and vocal performance major from Grand Island; Takayuki Moto, a composition major from Japan; and Deanna Tiller, a vocal performance and music education major from Kearney.
“The works range from children’s verse set to delightful music in Mark Musil’s25 Songs of Mother Goose, to the mysterious tones of Dan Korensky’sGhosts of the Forgotten Hour,” Dr. Mitchell said. “Takayuki Moto will present modern music created electronically on a computer and a Roland SoundCanvas. Deanna Tiller’s piece is a haunting melody that is freely atonal, and features flute and piano.”
