The University of North Georgia's (UNG) Department of Music has several fall events planned during the A Little Night(hawk) Music concert series, presenting monthly solo and chamber music performances featuring UNG music faculty and occasional guest artists, beginning with The 17/16 Collective on Oct. 3.
The 17/16 Collective is a program of contemporary chamber music that "flips the common perception of contemporary music on its head, with music designed not to shock, but rather to express in an approachable way not often associated with this period," according to Dr. Benjamin Schoening, associate professor of music and coordinator of A Little Night(hawk) Music.
The collective features a contemporary woodwind chamber ensemble formed from UNG faculty.
On Nov. 7 the series will present Brass Fireworks, featuring the newest member of the UNG music faculty, Dr. Adam Frey, assistant professor of music. The program features the full range of low brass, from beautiful melodies to explosive showpieces. Directly afterward, Dr. Joanna Kim, associate professor of music, will present Music for Emotions, featuring works from some of the Romantic masters.
On Nov. 28, Music Through the Ages will provide listeners with an opportunity to traverse music history in an evening. Presented by several faculty members, this program will explore music from the medieval to the contemporary through a series of small lectures and music performances.
For more information about the series or any performances, please contact Schoening at firstname.lastname@example.org or 678-717-3676.
All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Ed Cabell Theatre, located in the Continuing Education Building on the Gainesville Campus, and are free and open to the public.
