Trio des Alpes by Studio Neon, Milano

Music
Saturday, November 15 | 8:00 p.m.
Trio des Alpes
Concert Hall (Performing Arts & Humanities Building)

The Trio’s program will feature works by women composers, including the U.S. premiere of a new piece by UMBC professor Linda Dusman. (Click heading for full description.)
