UW-Green Bay Music’s 360° Thursdays presents guest artists for lecture, performance
UW-Green Bay Music will present the next event in its series of 360° Thursdays concerts at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 21 in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive.
The program, which includes commentary from the performers, will feature violist Michael Hall, faculty member at VanderCook College of Music in Chicago; and percussionist Joby Burgess, who has played across the globe and has toured with such musicians as Peter Gabriel and Graham Fitkin.
The pair will offer insights into their music and play through a five-piece set. They will start off with Fitkin’s “Chain of Command,” before performing “The darker they shine, the brighter they fall,” a composition from UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Michelle McQuade Dewhirst. That will be followed by “Subject to Change Without Notice,” a work by James Mobberley, and “Fanta®,” from Gabriel Prokofiev. Hall and Burgess will conclude with “Naturale,” by Luciano Berio.
The 360° Thursdays event is the third of eight for the 2013-14 academic year, and marks the return of the series after a successful inaugural run in 2012-13. 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.
The 360° Thursdays series features a diversity of performance styles designed to broaden attendees’ horizons and deepen their understanding of music. Each performance takes place at 6:30 p.m. in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts on campus, 2420 Nicolet Drive. Concerts are free but donations are appreciated.
