Students from SUU’s music department will perform a concert of avant-garde music April 24 at 7:30 p.m. in the Thorley Recital Hall in Cedar City. Music will be performed from contemporary composers John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Mark Applebaum, and Carl Bergstrøm-Nielsen. Three SUU students will premier compositions. Admission is free and open to the public.

“We will explore music thorough silence, graphic notation, noise from a radio, and written word,” said Gary Joe Howe, adjunct professor of music at SUU. “One of John Cage’s most controversial pieces, “4’33”,” will be performed as well as one of his ‘Imaginary Landscapes.’ The graphic score will be displayed, and you are invited to watch as the students interpret these scores. During the concert, we will read Stockhausen’s written word and look to make music out of it.”
