‘ITERATIONS’ MAKES WORLD PREMIERE ON UCA CAMPUS

“Iterations,” a musical composition in four movements for narrator, oboe and piano will make its world premiere Tuesday, Feb. 5 in the University of Central Arkansas Snow Fine Arts Center.

The premiere, presented by the UCA Department of Music and the College of Fine Arts and Communication, is part of the Faculty Chamber Concert, which begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. A lobby reception follows the concert.

Music for the piece was created by Daniel De Togni, who received his undergraduate degree in music studies at UCA. While at UCA, he won the Student Spotlight Concerto Competition, where he performed “Rhapsody in Blue” with the UCA Wind Ensemble. De Togni is a composer and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Text for “Iterations” was written by Terry Wright, dean of the UCA College of Fine Arts and Communication. Wright, who will narrate the performance, is also a professor of creative writing at UCA and the author of seven books/chapbooks of poetry.

Playing oboe during the performance will be Lorraine Duso Kitts, professor of Double Reeds at UCA. Kazuo Murakami, lecturer of Piano and Coordinator of Collaborative Piano, will play piano.
