SOUNDISFACTION: SPRING FEST PUSHES THE EDGES APRIL 16-23



  Showcasing the most innovative work of grad-level composers and performers, the 2009 Spring Festival of New Music--aka SOUNDISFACTION--puts the new Conrad Prebys Music Center through a rigorous road test. Opening May 16 at 7 pm in the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall with Fragments and Music Unheard, the festival offers a provocative program ranging from the Middle Ages (Hildegard of Bingen) to the Baroque era (Henry Purcell), Modern masters (Takemitsu), and emerging artists from the Department of Music. In the past, the Festival has been spread out among venues that were often inadequate, but this year, it takes full advantage of the new 400-seat Prebys Concert Hall, with its superb acoustics and 12-channel Meyer Sound system; the experimental theatre, with its flexible configurations and 60-mic simulation of acoustical environments; and the 150-seat lecture/recital hall, with excellent sound. Best of all, the music is FREE.
