LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The University of Louisville School of Music presents its annual New Music Festival Nov. 5-9, with a slate of renowned guest artists and composers such as Amy Williams, Sam Pluta, the Elysian Trombone Consort and A/Tonal.
The festival will include a screening of Zahra Partovi’s new film “Softly: A Giant Step,” an experimental film focusing on the music of American modernist composer Morton Feldman. Following the film, UofL faculty and guest artists will perform three of Feldman’s shorter works.
Williams, the festival’s headlining composer, is associate professor of music at University of Pittsburgh. Her award-winning music has been performed in the United States, Asia, Australia and Europe. She is currently a Fulbright Scholar at the University College Cork, Ireland.
