On February 4, the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra in Texas will present a multimedia concert at the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA) Icehouse, featuring a range of contemporary classical music as part of its new “SOUND!” chamber series. The concert, which includes special lighting, colors, and other visual elements, will feature Christopher Theofanidis’s Birichino; excerpts from David Little’s JFK: Opera and Oratorio; and Conlon Nancarrow’s Study 3A, Study 12, and Study 21. The program will feature works by two faculty members at Texas Tech University in Lubbock—D.J. Sparr’s Vibraphone Concerto and Jennifer Jolley’s Shine a Light on our Rights—and will also include Scott Joplin’s “Maple Leaf Rag,” “Solace,” and “Easy Winners.” David Cho is music director of the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra.
