Capstone Song Initiative promotes UA composers

Analiese Gerald

WHAT: Capstone Song Initiative. The audience will hear works performed by UA students, faculty and guest artists.

WHO: School of Music

WHEN: Saturday, April 9, 7:30p.m.

WHERE: Bryant-Jordan Hall

WHY The event is a way to showcase the music of living and actively writing composers.

The audience will also be able to appreciate “works for the intimate space of the recital hall,” said David Tayloe, assistant professor of voice in the School of Music. “So many composers are focused on dramatic works, and works for the stage that we often forget about smaller mediums.” 

“People should come to this event to hear new compositions that are accessible, and audience friendly… There will be songs that range from emotional, to hilarious, to uncomfortable, to beautiful. It is not a formal event, rather a relaxed environment for people to explore the works of contemporary composers,” Tayloe said.
