UW-Green Bay Music will present the next installment in its 360° Thursdays concert and lecture series at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30 in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive.
The first of five 360° Thursdays events scheduled for spring semester, the lecture/concert will feature UW-Green Bay Assistant Prof. Courtney Sherman and “a very small consortium.” Lowercase by design, this “very small” musical group focuses on miniature masterpieces that are generally 100 notes or fewer or one minute or less in duration. Its members are Michael Dewhirst, cello; Associate Prof. Michelle McQuade Dewhirst, horn; Associate Prof. Adam Gaines, trumpet; Lada Gaines, soprano saxophone; Elaine Moss, piano; and Sherman, soprano. The group will perform a variety of pieces including McQuade Dewhirst’s original composition, “disillusioned.”
The 360° Thursdays series features a diversity of performance styles designed to broaden attendees’ horizons and deepen their understanding of music. A component of UW-Green Bay’s 360° of Learning brand, the concert-lecture event helps students, faculty, staff and community members connect with music in more meaningful ways. Performances feature scintillating and provocative pre-concert discussions by a composer, performer or arranger. Attendees will consider a single aspect of music through multiple perspectives.
Each 360° Thursdays performance takes place at 6:30 p.m. in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center. Concerts are free but donations are appreciated. More information on the series is available on their website.
This is the 15th performance of the 2013-14 season for UW-Green Bay, an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Music. More information about UW-Green Bay Music is available online.
