Cal State Dominguez Hills is continuing the “Festival of New and Improvised Music,” a series of free concerts hosted by the music department on campus.
Performances, conversations and master classes taught by renowned composers and musicians will be the talk and highlight of the festival.
This semester the festival will consist of three concerts: Vinny Golia Sextet, Brightwork Ensemble and The Native Plant Society.
These concerts will take place three consecutive Tuesdays in October, in which Vinny Golia Sextent, an American composer and multi-instrumentalist who specializes in woodwind instruments, kicked off the first concert of the series last week, at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 10.
Brightwork Ensemble, the next concert of the series, focuses on newly composed concert music and masterworks from the 20th century, which will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 17.
And lastly, The Native Plant Society, a sextet led by CSUDH faculty composter Jonathan Grasse and students Poncho Williams and Ismael Pineda, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 24.
The free concerts will take place on campus in either the Laser Recital hall (A-103) in the LaCorte Hall building, or in the University Theatre.
