Industrial Carillon presents new music from Nick Rissman

Nick RissmanIndustrial Carillon, Lamar University’s new-music ensemble, will present "New (and not so new) music from Nick Rissman" at 7:30 p.m., Monday, April 27. Rissman, director of Industrial Carillon, and associate professor in the Mary Morgan Moore Department of Music, will host this evening of original compositions.

"Industrial Carillon concerts involve a new approach to making and experiencing music, and this concert is no exception. There will be an interesting component of audience collaboration - let us just say that it will involve the use of their smart phones," said Rissman. "And we will also hear from some of the music department’s outstanding students, all of whom are very talented and possess great potential."

The concert will also feature Jacob Clark, assistant professor of piano; Dwight Peirce, collaborative pianist; and Travis Fife, director of percussion studies and the Lamar Percussion Ensemble.

The Industrial Carillon was established to entertain, enlighten and challenge listeners with new, diverse concert music representing a variety of styles and cultures. 

The concert will take place in the atrium of the Mobil Oil Federal Credit Union at the corner of Delaware Street and Major Drive in Beaumont. Because of the unconventional nature of the venue, audience members are asked to arrive early because the doors will be shut at 7:30 p.m. as the concert begins.

Admission is free. For more information, call the Mary Morgan Moore Department of Music at (409) 880-8144 or visit
