In collaboration with the 'Entertaining Science' series, Composers Concordance presents a concert combining a short lecture by renowned scientist Christina Pressl with performances by trumpet soloist Franz Hackl, drummer Jonathan Kane, and the CompCord String Quartet. Music on the program will respond to the science of facial recognition, Christina Pressl's specialty, and/or Austria. Featured compositions include Dave Soldier’s ‘Vienna Over the Hills’, Gene Pritsker’s arrangement of Austrian legend Joe Zawinul’s ‘A Remark You Made,’ as well as a new piece for trumpet and string quartet.
