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.
