Mothers of Invention Inspire
High Energy Ensemble

California State University, Sacramento and Music Now commemorate the accomplishments of women composers with a "Mothers of Invention" concert at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 20.

The concert will feature recent works by five prominent female artists and an appearance by Pauline Oliveros, who will join Music Now's ensemble in the performance of one of her pieces.

Oliveros, composer-in-residence at Mills College has influenced American music extensively through her works with improvisation, electronic music and teaching. Her work has been commissioned by the Lincoln Center and she has received numerous awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship and two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships.

The Music Now ensemble, directed by Howard Hersh, will also perform the high energy Petrouchskates by Joan Tower, a meditative adaptation of a Buddhist chant by Hyo-Shin Na, a solo piece by Melissa Hui and a new work for flute, clarinet, piano, percussion, violin and cello by Jennifer Higdon.

This concert is made possible by grants from the California Arts Council and the Cultural Arts Awards Program of the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, with support from the city and county of Sacramento.

The concert will be held in Capistrano Hall 151 and tickets are $10 general and $5 for students. Tickets are available at the CSUS Ticket Office, (916) 278-4323.
