Music by Bates students and faculty, including Associate Professor of Music Hiroya Miura and Alice Swanson Esty Professor of Music William Matthews, constitutes one of two forthcoming programs by New York City’s Ensemble Mise-En.

In 7:30 p.m. performances in the Olin Arts Center, the group offers music by Danish and American composers on Sunday, Nov. 15, and by a dozen Bates composers the following evening. Admission is free but tickets are required, available at bit.ly/oacbates. For more information, please contact 207-786-6135 or olinarts@bates.edu.

Hailed by The New York Times for “examining unusual corners of the composition world,” this contemporary music collective was founded in 2011 by composer-conductor Moon Young Ha.

In addition to Ha’s “(in)stillness,” the Sunday concert features music by Hans Abrahamsen, Simon Steen-Andersen, Bent Sørensen, Enda Bates, Frederic Rzewski, and Beth Wiemann.

Along with Matthews and Miura, the Bates composers represented on Monday are Elliot Chun ’18, Will Reber ’16, Patrick Nelson ’18, Justin Demers ’18, Abby Bierman ’17, Hikaru Asao ’16, Divyamaan Sahoo ’17, Declan Chu ’17, Ben Cuba ’16, and Gabriel Mizrachi ’16.
