Concert: Intensity Percussion Ensemble

DiCicco Hall, Room 121 Cogswell Hall

Saturday, February 24, 2018

Working in tandem with composer/author William Osborne, Ms. Conant blends her unique talents as trombonist, vocalist, and actor to create a theatrical experience that speaks to contemporary social issues.

Her performances have been critically acclaimed throughout the world.

The German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung reports:

An utterly entertaining evening… This fabulous Abbie Conant… After seeing and hearing the musician Abbie Conant, one gets an idea of what many actresses are painfully lacking: namely, a musically schooled sensitivity to the pitch inflections and flexibility of the voice, that allows her to present an astoundingly varied rhythmic and expressive performance, and all with a natural ease one seldom finds. […] An excellent, versatile, talented performance artist, and an outstanding trombonist as well.

This free performance is one not to be missed. To learn more about Abbie Conant and William Osborne, visit their website.

Folk Art Workshop for Children Grades 4–6

Sprowls Hall (Room TBD)

Participants will be taken on a tour of the University Museum's current exhibit Memory and Magic: Folk Artists of Western Pennsylvania. Afterwards, they will return to the art studio to make their very own folk art.

To register, call Audrey in the Art Department at 724-357-2530.
