Ten music students from the University of New Mexico will be presenting a series of concerts in venues that don't often get live performances. The first of these performances takes place at Joy Junction (homeless shelter) on Thursday, May 10 at 6:30 p.m. The second performance is for the students at the Juvenile Detention Center on Friday, May 11 at 9 a.m.
These informal concerts will include spoken introductions, audience participation, along with a wide variety of music from classical masterpieces, to avant garde works, to jazz, pop, country and rap.
The performances are part of a class taught by Professor Karl Hinterbichler and are intended to expand performance opportunities for student musicians, and share their music outside the academic environment.
