The Adams House Musical Society has announced it will hold a Harvard Composer's Festival in April. The program will consist entirely of original compositions by University and Radcliffe students. The Pierian Sodality voted Thursday night to play the orchestral part of the program.
The concerts will be open to the public, and will be held on the nights of April 20 and 27. The first evening's program will feature orchestral music, while the second will be devoted primarily to choral works.
Aaron Copland, Charles Eliot Norton Professor of Poetry, Allen D. Sapp, instructor in music, and Robert Middleton, instructor in music, will hold a discussion panel after the performances to analyze the works with their composers.
Compositions can be submitted by any student in the University or Radcliffe. The deadline is 12 noon Saturday, March 1, in the Paine Hall Record Library.
