Finishing the Year with Many Exciting Concerts and Recitals

There has been a lot going on as we move into the final weeks of the semester. At this time of year, there are concerts and recitals nearly every night, and both students and faculty are keeping very busy. This past Friday, musical guests, "Pulsoptional" were welcomed, which includes Dr. John Mayrose, a composition professor in the Department of Music. They showcased a blend of contemporary and prog rock sounds.

Another great concert was, "Sounds Like Now", which took place in the Priebe Art Gallery on campus. This series is a continuing collaboration between faculty and students. This particular event featured a variety of unique contemporary pieces, one of which included a large 52-page musical score that required the performers move around the room in order to read!

Additionally, many students are performing their junior and senior recitals before graduating or starting their internships. One of our Music Industry students and singers, Matthew Mikunda, finished his recital with guests Adam Robinson and Cam Anderson. We always look forward to the students displaying their range of musical talent that they have developed throughout their time in the program.

Lastly, the Music Industry program is excited to be hosting the first ever Recording Concert this Wednesday, April 26, aptly titled, "R1". It will feature 10 songs that were recorded by Majors and Minors in the program, which also feature the talents of many UWO musicians. We are sure to finish out the semester in exciting fashion!
