Alia’s ‘Back to school’ concert

Hi all! I hope everyone is enjoying this back-to-school time.To celebrate, or to smooth the transition, I'm happy to invite everyone to our next concert this Sunday, opening Alia Musica's 2008-9 Season (and a promising vibrant new-music scene in the Fall).As usual, we'll have pieces composed by several Pitt compositions students: Kerrith Livengood, James Ogburn, Mark Fromm. One by former student Erica Kudisch (who graduated and left for New York), and one of my pieces---written back in the day for Roger Zahab. We're adding a piece by a colleague from Duquesne, Thomas Childs.Mostly duos—from two hi-hats to English Horn and piano—but the piece that holds everything together is for narrator/singer and trio... you'll see what I mean.Anyway, the concert is at Chatham College, at 7pm on Sunday the 31st. Tickets are $8 for students or online, $10 at the door. Full details, directions, tickets, at Alia Musica's website. Hope to see you all there! -Federico Garcia
