Join us in celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Arts Center with the return of our FIU Music Festival this season from October 5th until October 28th! For information about all festival performances, please visit music.fiu.edu/musicfestival. 


The FIU Wind Ensemble and Women’s Chorus is proud to present four world premieres for this performance! FIU Faculty Composer in Residence Orlando Garcia, University of Miami Composer Scott Stinson, BMI Award-winning Composer Steve Danyew, and eminent Choral Composer Sydney Guillaume were asked to compose a work based on their concepts of “Urban Landscapes.” Each composer was given the acoustical palate of a reduced size wind ensemble and women’s chorale with which to compose their works. Conductors Brenton Alston and Kathryn Longo will bring these innovative new works to life in performance, followed by a unique panel discussion with each composer about their own creative process for “Urban Landscapes.”
