UW-Green Bay Music will present “Contemporary Voices from Latin America,” the next installment in its 360° Thursdays lecture-concert series, at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16 in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.
The event will feature violinist Francesca Anderegg and pianist Esther Wang, who will explore the rich offerings of Latin American composers that encompass both folkloric and modernist styles of music. The concert will consider a global variety of influences as seen through the perspective of Latin American composers. Noted Venezuelan composer Reinaldo Moya will join the pair for this lecture-recital showing the diversity of styles in contemporary Latin American music. They will close the concert with the influences of Venezuelan folk music and American minimalism combined in Moya’s Imagined Archipelagos.
Now in its second season, the 360° Thursdays concert 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 approach, 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 on campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive. Concerts are free but a $5 suggested donation is appreciated.
