UT Fulbright Recipient’s Original Work to Be Featured at Recital
When Brendan McConville, an associate professor of music at UT, went to Italy on a Fulbright in 2016, he spent six months soaking up and recording the sounds of the country. During the program, he also translated those sounds into several original compositions based on the poetry of Gabriele D’Annunzio, the prized poet of the province of Abruzzo. Those works will be featured in a faculty concert recital to be held at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 27, at the Sandra G. Powell Recital Hall in the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center on the UT campus. The event is free and open to the public.
