Art Gallery to Host Concert

The Department of Music, in collaboration with the Department of Art and the University Art Gallery, will sponsor a concert by Uncommon Practice at 7 p.m. March 2 in the gallery.

Uncommon Practice, with special guests Carter Datz, Brian Kubin and Jeffrey Seppala, will perform six pieces that reflect on the themes of the current exhibition on display in the University Art Gallery. The gallery is currently showing “Join, Buy, Save: World War I Posters on the Home Front” and “Arts Against the Great War” in honor of the centennial of World War I. Throughout the months of February and March, the University Art Gallery has partnered with various departments to help explore the themes and impact of the war.

Under the direction of Victor Marquez, Uncommon Practice will perform three pieces written during World War I and three pieces that reflect on some of the themes of the war composed by Bernstein, Donaldson, Ives, Messiaen and Novello, including the world premiere of “Your Loving Son, P.H.S.: I En Route To Get The Kaiser,” written by Marquez and featuring the voice of Datz with Kubin on the cello.

The concert is free and open to the public.
