Luther student composition recital concert May 13

Luther College's composition studio will perform a student composition recital at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 13, in the Noble Recital Hall of the Jenson-Noble Hall of Music on the Luther campus.

The recital is open to the public with no charge for admission. The recital will feature original works from the Luther composition studio.

The studio recently composed music for Luther's productions of "Soil Turning" and "Marie Antoinette," as well as an original score for the silent film "Metropolis."

Luther is home to one of the largest undergraduate music programs in the nation, with six choirs, three orchestras, three bands, two jazz bands and more than 800 student musicians. Luther students participate in large ensembles, faculty-coached chamber groups, private lessons and master classes. Nearly 275 music majors study music theory, ear training, history, education, composition, jazz, church music and performance.
