UC San Diego's Department of Music

September 16, 2010

  New and experimental music is showcased in the Department of Music's increasingly popular Wednesdays@7 concert series featuring renowned faculty performers and special guests.

The 2010-2011 season begins Oct. 6 with Aleck Karis (piano) and Charles Curtis (cello) performing composer Morton Feldman's luminous Patterns in a Chromatic Field. Karis and Curtis released a CD of Feldman's work in 2004.

Between October and May, Weds@7 ranges from new music by composers such as James Newton and Katharina Rosenberger to multimedia works including Mark Dresser's live Telematic internet collaboration and performances by Palimpsest, Steven Schick, and many others.

"Wednesdays@7 gives us the chance to showcase the kinds of music for which our department has become known since its founding by composers 45 years ago," said Aleck Karis, acting chair. "We have some of the most talented composers and performers one can hear anywhere in the world, and I encourage San Diegans to sample this compelling and rewarding music."

Concerts take place at the Department of Music's new Conrad Prebys Music Center, which opened in May 2009 and includes a state-of-the-art 400-seat concert hall as well as an experimental theatre adaptable for a variety of traditional, experimental, and multimedia performances.

Tickets for Weds@7 are $15 general, $10 for UCSD faculty and staff, $1 student rush one hour before concert. To purchase tickets, call the Department of Music Box Office: (858) 822-2166.
