Public Pay As You're Able Tickets are on sale now. Michigan Tech Music believes that the foundation of an equitable and inclusive arts culture requires making events financially accessible to all. So, this year we are beta testing Pay as You're Able ticketing on a few events, including this one.
All public tickets for this performance are Pay As You're Able. Our "full fee" represents the value of the ticket. For you, Pay As You’re Able may mean covering your ticket price and part of someone else's through "full fee +." It could also mean paying half or some of the ticket price. Please pay what you can afford.
Composer Judith Shatin is renowned for her richly imagined music that seamlessly spans acoustic and digital realms. Called “highly inventive on every level” by The Washington Post, her music combines an adventurous approach to timbre with dynamic narrative design and a keen awareness of the sonic landscape of modern life. She draws on multiple fascinations with the sounding world (both natural and built), literature, the visual arts, and music’s social and communicative power to craft a clear, direct musical language that resonates with performers and audiences worldwide.
Libby Meyer is a composer whose work reflects the natural rhythms and patterns of the world around her. Her music, including chamber, orchestral, choral, wind symphony, film, dance, and theater, has been commissioned and performed throughout the United States. Libby holds a DMA in Music Composition from Northwestern University and is a Lecturer in Music Theory/Composition at Michigan Tech University.
Michigan Tech Music, part of the Michigan Tech Visual and Performing Arts Department, offers ten music performance groups: bands, orchestra, jazz, and choral ensembles that expose students, faculty, and the community to the artistic and communicative values of music and the power it has to change lives.
