Collaborative Composition Concert
The Department of Music is happy to host a concert of compositions by Robert Mueller of the University of Arkansas and Brad Bombardier of the University of Minnesota Duluth. The concert will be at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 6, at the Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Center. It will include original works performed by the composers along with Theresa Delaplain (oboe and English horn), Christopher MacRae (tenor), Moon-Sook Park (soprano), Er-Gene Kahng (violin), Miranda Baker (violin), Dominic K. Na (violoncello), and Fiona Slaughter (oboe).
Mueller and Bombardier have colaborated musically since 1983. They first met in graduate school at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. While students at BGSU, they programed their first joint composition recital that would inspire the later "World Tours" of their music together. The first three tours took place in the mid-1980s to mid-1990s and included concerts in Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Arkansas.
Tonight's performance is "Composition World Tour IV." A few weeks ago, the composing duo performed the first part of the concert in Duluth at the University of Minnesota Duluth. The concert is free and open to the public.
