Project 21 will present a Halloween concert Friday.
The concert is free and open to the public. It is scheduled for 8 p.m. in Petree Recital Hall in Kirk- patrick Fine Arts Center.
The Halloween concert is one of several concerts Project 21 plans to present this year.
“The Halloween concert will be really fun,” said Dr. Edward Knight, director of composition. “It’s something different than what we do any other time.”
The Project 21 committee urges students to sign up for the concert if they have a piece of music they would like to perform.
“At some schools you have to audition, but here, anybody who has a piece of music if they want to get it on, they can get it on,” Knight said.
Project 21 provides a platform for students to work with different artists and gain learning experience through the process. By collaborating with students from different majors, students expand their horizons and explore the ways music can be fused into different forms of art. Project 21 aims to get musicians together to create new art, combined with the diversity of style in music composition, Knight said.
“Project 21 is a great way to interact with the different composers and performers, and learn more about the composition process,” said Aline Boyd, piano perfor- mance sophomore.
One student said she thinks it is good to take the opportunity to perform.
“It may be hard to get up on stage to perform, but it is a good learning experience. You get to learn about the different composing styles,” said Daniel Taborda, com- position and conducting sophomore.
