The program includes Steve Reich's 1990 Grammy-winning composition about World War II and the Holocaust entitled Different Trains for string quartet and electronics; Mario Davidovsky's Pulitzer-winning Synchronisms No. 6 for piano and tape, Morton Subotnick's Passages Of The Beast for clarinet and 'ghost electronics,' and works by Scott Lindroth and KU's own Professor Kip Haaheim.

"I've been at KU for ten years now and there has never been this sort of attention paid to some of the most important electronic music written by some of the most innovative composers of the 20th century," said Professor Haaheim. "This concert is largely driven by student interest and we are excited to present it to the public."

This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the KU School of Music at 785-864-3436. Visit us at www.music.ku.edu.
