The concert will take place at 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, in the Recital Hall of the Music Building.
On the program will be recent chamber works by composers Irina Dubkova, David Gompper and Giacinto Scelsi. The program also will feature three world premieres by composers Luke Dahn, Joseph Dangerfield, and Louis Karchin.
The performance at NIU will be the first in a concert tour that will culminate in the ensemble’s Carnegie Hall debut in October.
The mission of the newly established Ensemble: Périphérie is to promote contemporary music by presenting stimulating and inspiring concerts of new chamber works, by commissioning new works from both emerging and established composers, and by inviting audiences to join us in recognizing great art of our time.
Established in 2010 by composers Joseph Dangerfield and Luke Dahn, EP consists of a core group of performing artists in the midwestern region.
One of the primary goals of EP is to bring greater exposure to composers and works that are underperformed and neglected – that is, music that lies on the periphery.
The concert is free and open to the public, and the building is accessible to all. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
