A program of transcriptions explores an eclectic variety of styles, some in the holiday spirit! Highlights include an arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite for two pianos, a concerto by J.S. Bach and a preview of music from UWGB composition professor Michelle McQuade Dewhirst’s new original score to the film Metropolis.
The 6:30 Concert Series is an innovative performance series designed to connect the campus and local communities with music in a deeper way. Performances feature insightful presentations by performers, composers, and special guests. The series offers new perspectives on diverse musical styles, often exploring the music from multiple angles. The primary focus of the 2016/2017 series is the adventurous musicianship of the UWGB Music Department faculty. All performances begin early (6:30 PM), last between 60 and 90 minutes, and are free and open to the public.
