3:00 pm - 5:30 pm    NEHMA Museum + Music Imagining Community: Logan 1948-49

Arts & Entertainment / Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art

This year, Museum + Music explores different conceptions of “community” suggested by the intersection of visual art and music. The first concert considers the artistic life of Cache Valley, and Utah in general, immediately after the Second World War. In 1948 Roy Harris, who was one of the preeminent composers of American classical music at the time, and his wife Johana, a virtuoso pianist with a career in her own right, accepted positions at Utah State Agricultural College. During their brief stay they contributed to a burgeoning cultural scene, much of which was fostered by New Deal programs. “Logan 1948-49” features guest solo pianist Jean-Louis Haguenauer, a renowned interpreter of the French repertoire and Professor of Piano at the Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University, Bloomington, as well as USU Caine College of the Arts Music Department faculty Bradley Ottesen and Mayumi Matzen.
