Music + Festival 2017
The UA School of Music presents the 10th annual Music + Festival, which will be highlighted by the presence of composer Joan Tower, one of America's foremost composers. An entire concert will be devoted solely to the music of Duke Ellington, and a rare performance of an Ellington work for orchestra and jazz ensemble will be heard. The festival also provides the opportunity to encounter the music of the 20th-century giant Paul Hindemith, who through composition, conducting, and teaching, transformed musical life in Europe and America in the 20th century.
The Music + Festival is made possible with the support of The Apgar Foundation; The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation; The Sarah Scaife Foundation; Volvo of Tucson; Drs. Fran and Tim Orrok; Wesley Green; Harvey Motulsky and Lisa Norton; I. Michael and Beth Kasser; Mesch Clark and Rothschild; HBL CPAs; Classical 90.5 FM / Arizona Public Media; KVOI 1030 AM "The Voice" Radio; The Arizona Daily Star; College of Fine Arts Bank One Visiting Artist Professorship Awards; and the American Culture and Ideas Initiative.
