CSU Presents March Virtuoso Series Concert: Clarinet in the Digital Age

Join Wesley Ferreira, clarinet & Daniel Fung, piano, for a digitally driven recital you are bound to remember

The Virtuoso Series at Colorado State University continues in March with a special interactive performance from CSU’s renowned recital clarinetist Wesley Ferreira, and guest New York pianist Daniel Fung. The digitally driven recital takes place on Monday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Organ Recital Hall at the University Center for the Arts, located at 1400 Remington St.

Tickets are $7 for CSU students, $1 for youth (under 18), and $12 for the public. Tickets are available at the University Center for the Arts (UCA) ticket office in the UCA lobby Monday through Friday, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. and 60 minutes prior to performances, by phone at 970-491-ARTS (2787), or online at www.CSUArtsTickets.com. Youth tickets must be purchased in person at the Ticket Office. All tickets are subject to a $1 ticket fee for both online and at-the-door purchases. Advance ticket purchase is highly recommended to avoid lines and further at-the-door fees.

The Virtuoso Series at Colorado State University seeks to showcase CSU’s music faculty performance talent and continues this trend with this special performance from Ferreira.

The performance features the winning repertoire selections that were voted upon by the public on Ferreira’s website, including everything from classics like Brahm’s Clarinet Sonata No.2, to contemporary compositions like McAllister’s Bling, Bling. The performance explores the constant presence of the clarinet in composition and its presence in the current digital age of music.
