WVU music faculty members, with guest pianist Mary Kefferstan, will present a New Music Concert at the Creative Arts Center, Saturday, Oct. 3, that will feature electronic pieces.

The free concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Bloch Learning and Performance Hall (200A) and will feature faculty members Lynn Hileman, contra-bassoon, Francesca Arnone, flute, John Winkler, trumpet, Virginia Thompson, horn, and George Willis, percussion.

The program includes: “ContraMax” for contra-bassoon and interactive electronics, comosed by Mark Engebretson and performed by Hileman; “Reminiscence” for solo flute, composed by WVU music alumnus He Jian-Jun and performed by Arnone; and “A Road Beyond” for trumpet with live processing and electroacoustic accompaniment, composed by Scott Wyatt and performed by Winkler.

Following a short intermission, Kefferstan will perform “Star Light” by David Liptak, a marimba quartet will perform “Metropolitan Moonlight Balconies” by David Newcomb, who graduated from WVU with a master’s degree in music in 2009; and Arnone, Thompson and Willis will perform ”?sky is falling in?” by Michelle McQuade Dewhirst.
