Performance & Lecture Series
In this section, you will find descriptions of performances and lectures that are open to the public and constitute a series, or occur on an annual basis.
This innovative series is a treasure for contemporary arts enthusiasts and features outstanding musicians from around the country. In 2012–2013, we celebrate the 14th season of New Music New College. The five-concert series includes a number of free artist conversations that allow audience members to get to know the musicians and what's behind their music. Guest artists for the season include Third Coast Percussion, pianist Marilyn Lerner and vocalist/composer Toby Twining with his jazz ensemble. The vision for New Music New College lies with its director, music professor Stephen Miles. Visit our website for details at www.newmusicnewcollege.org!
