The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Music will welcome a three-time Grammy award-winning composer on Nov. 30, when the university premieres two of the artist's new pieces.
The UW Wind Ensemble will perform two of Michael Daugherty’s new works: “Bells for Stowkowski” and “Motown Metal.”
The free performance begins at 8 p.m. in Mills Hall at 455 N. Park St. A pre-concert discussion with Daughterty begins at 7:15 p.m.
Daugherty is collaborating with the university in a special program that brings in accomplished contemporary composers to work directly with the musicians of the UW Wind Ensemble and student composers.
The Sun Prairie High School Wind Ensemble will join the UW group for the evening with a performance conducted by Steve Sveum.
