UNT Music in the City: Canetti-menagerie, a surreal soiree

Moody Performance Hall
4-11-2018 @ 7:30 PM

This 75-minute program includes seven of Joseph Klein's solo works based on the surreal characters portrayed in Elias Canetti's 1974 book Earwitness, performed by UNT faculty and guest artists. The program is bookended by performances of the semi-improvisational chamber work Canetti-menagerie, which uses material from these solo works to develop a series of musical conversations between the various characters. The program will include readings of the Canetti texts to introduce each character, as well as photographic interpretations of the Canetti characters by local artist and UNT alumna Jessica Leza.

Featured performers:
Carol Wilson and William Joyner, narrators
Elizabeth McNutt, piccolo
Kimberly Cole Luevano, basset horn
John Holt, trumpet
