New Music Festival Computer to Speak

Daniel Kingman, prize-winning composer and emeritus professor of music at California State University, Sacramento will present the keynote lecture of the Festival of New American Music at noon, Friday, Nov. 12 in the Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall.

Kingman will speak in place of the originally scheduled speaker, composer Libby Larsen. Larsen is unable to attend the event due to family obligations.

His talk will be on "What Does New American Music Mean to Me?" Kingman also will discuss compositions to be performed at the Festival of New American Music Finale, including works by Larsen.
