NIU’s School of Music will host the Khasma Duo in a recital of new and recent music for piano duet (one piano, four hands).

The recital will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2, in the Recital Hall of the NIU Music Building.

Ashlee Mack and Katherine Palumbo formed the Khasma Duo in 2012. The two pianists have been playing together for several years since meeting as undergraduates at Bucknell University in 2000.

Because they share a passion for contemporary music, the duo has dedicated themselves to the performance of works from the 20th and 21st centuries.

In March 2014, Khasma performed at the National Conference of the Society of Composers Incorporated at Ball State University. Upcoming concerts include performances at Knox College, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Frostburg State University and the Eastman School of Music. The programs will feature works chosen from their 2014 Call for Scores.

The concert is free and open to the public, and the Recital Hall is accessible to all. For more information, call David Maki at (815) 753-7699.
