Student Composers Recital and New Music Ensemble Showcase

The FIU School of Music rising composers showcase their works along with the FIU New Music Ensemble in this joint concert.

FIU students in composition will be Felipe Carvajal, Maureen Reyes, and Melissa Iverson.

The New Music Ensemble will preform works of performance art by Juraj Kojs, Manuel Sosa, and more.

The FIU New Music Ensemble will present a program of American experimentalism and performance art including works by Cage, Kojs, Psimikakis-Chalkokondylis, Sosa, and more. Founded in Fall 1987, the FIU New Music Ensemble specializes in the performance of contemporary chamber, experimental and electronic music with an emphasis in the music of the last 50 years. The ensemble’s instrumentation changes from semester to semester allowing for the presentation of a variety of repertoire. Performances include those on campus each semester as well as those in the community at galleries, libraries, museums, and other universities/colleges in the region. The ensemble has recently been featured at the Subtropics Music Festival, The Society of Composers National and Regional Conferences, and the National Conference of the College Music Society. To date the ensemble has presented music by a variety of composers representing a wide range of aesthetics, styles, and media from the US and diverse parts of the world including works written for the ensemble as well as works by young and established composers alike. The ensemble is made up of some of the School of Music’s best student performers.
