Loyola at a Glance
February Montage calendar boasts free concerts
February 14, 2014
Two free concerts at Loyola University New Orleans this month will run the musical gamut, from the electronic sounds of the modern laptop orchestra to the classical sounds of American horn music.
Both performances are open to the public and set for Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall, located in the Communications/Music Complex on Loyola’s main campus.
- Electronic Music at Loyola, Saturday, Feb. 15, 7 p.m.
Members of Loyola’s own student laptop orchestra, the Electro-Acoustic Ensemble, will join faculty and alumni in a program that integrates computers into conventional music making.
- Josh Paulus, Horn Recital, Thursday, Feb. 20, 7:30 p.m.
Paulus, a new horn professor at Loyola, will present a recital of 20th century American music for horn. The program will feature works by Vincent Persichetti, Alec Wilder, Doug Hill and Gunther Schuller, including the latter's seldom performed "5 Pieces for 5 Horns," featuring the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra's horn section. Loyola vocal coach Yui Asano will accompany on piano.
