The HSO values our relationships with partners throughout the community, and as such, we remain respectful of our partners’ safety guidelines related to the pandemic. In order to ensure the safety of their students, faculty, and staff, UAH requires that masks are worn over the nose and mouth at all times while on the UAH campus. Therefore, masks are required at all times during the HSO’s Casual Classics 1 concert at the UAH Roberts Recital Hall on September 26, even during the concert. We are grateful for your cooperation.

Joshua Burel, William Price, and Amir Zaheri, composers

Contemporary classical music thrives in all corners of the world, including our home state of Alabama. This introspective program of new music will showcase recent compositions by three noted Alabama composers. You know Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms – but what about the composers living right next door?

Maybe your neighbors include engineers, nurses, or teachers – but what if one of them is a composer, of all things? Today’s program focuses on exciting new works by living composers right here in Alabama: Joshua Burel from Huntsville, Birmingham’s William Price, and Amir Zaheri, who comes to us from Tuscaloosa. Join us in Roberts Recital Hall on the UAH campus for an afternoon of exciting new music and engaging discussion by these three fantastic composers from the University of Alabama system.
