BYU’s Group for New Music is pleased to present new works by some of today’s most distinctive contemporary composers, including Jessie Montgomery, Carolina Heredia, Raven Chacon, Fred Onovwerosuoke, and Bajinder Singh Sekhon. Guest performers include the BYU Percussion Ensemble and faculty cellist Michelle Kesler.

Join us for an enjoyable evening as BYU Faculty Composers Kevin Anthony, Christian Asplund, Steven Ricks, and Neil Thornock present new works for various instruments and media. The works explore innovative and traditional tuning systems, multimedia performance including live electronics and video, and other interesting techniques. Due to the recent university requirement, all patrons and employees are required to wear a mask while indoors at campus performance venues, regardless of vaccination status.

This BYU installment marks the first time new faculty member Dr. Kevin Anthony takes over the co-curation of the series from its former co-founder, Dr. Steven Ricks.
