2.2.17 Sonic Illusions: The Music of Aaron Helgeson

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm


Longy faculty and guests will present the music of another Longy faculty member, 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 Masters and Doctoral degrees in composition from University College of San Diego, and Bachelor’s degrees in composition and theater from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio.
