MUSIC OF THE 21ST CENTURY: SUSAN BOTTI, COMPOSER

The DePauw School of Music welcomes celebrated composer and soprano Susan Botti for the  Music of the 21st Century festival.

“Susan’s music is gorgeous, expressive, and has so much character – her pieces are like a theater of sounds,” says festival coordinator Eliza Brown. “My hope is that her week on campus is one of sustained musical growth and discovery for the School of Music and anyone who comes to hear the two concerts of her work.”

The closing concert will feature works performed by a student/faculty chamber ensemble, the University Orchestra, solo saxophonist with sax sextet, and the combined University Band and Choirs with Botti herself as soloist. After the concert, guests are invited to a Valentine’s Day reception with desserts and hors d’oeuvres.

The concerts and following reception are free and open to the public. To read more and download a full festival schedule, click here.
