The program will include “A Garland” (for Bruce, 2012) by David Felder, SUNY Distinguished Professor and Birge-Cary Chair in Music Composition at UB, a piece for cello composed in honor of Bruce Jackson, SUNY Distinguished Professor and James Agee Professor of American Culture. The cellist will be Jonathon Golove, associate professor, UB Department of Music.

Golove also will perform two other pieces on the program: Stravinsky’s “Suite italienne” (from Pulcinella, 1932) and “Three Dances” by Astor Piazzolla (1921-92).

Percussionist Thomas Kolor, UB assistant professor of music, will open the program with “Frigate,” by J.T. Rinker, adjunct instructor in music and media study, and managing director of the UB’s Robert and Carol Morris Center for 21st Century Music.

“A Musical Feast” was founded and is directed by Charles Haupt, retired BPO concert master and concert master of Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra for 21 years.
