A recital of award-winning composer Aaron Helgeson.

Official Description

Longy faculty and guests present the music of award-winning composer Aaron Helgeson, whose work combines the sparseness of minimalism, Baroque-like ornamentation, and the sound palette of free improvisation to produce surreal aural deceptions on acoustic instruments. Helgeson holds master’s and doctoral degrees in composition from UC San Diego, and bachelor’s degrees in composition and theater from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio.
