was live — with Chloe Rowlands and 3 others

September 11 at 8:02 PM  

Live Talk - The Westerlies & Mason Bynes

Tonight at 7PM EST on Facebook/Youtube:

The Westerlies!

Riley Mulherkar and Chloe Rowlands on trumpet, and Andy Clausen and Willem de Koch on trombone. Their performance will include a special piece by composer Mason Bynes honoring Rosa Parks.

Nightingale Vocal Ensemble 

 

Mason Bynes is one of Nightingale's wonderful sopranos, and a magnificent composer! For our upcoming Stardust: Songs of the Cosmos, she composed a new piece: "Nebula." Since she was kind enough to share some hilarious bloopers with us earlier this week, we thought it only fair to show her final product!

Take a look below to learn more about what we hope to bring to you this season! Donors of even $1 to our kickstarter campaign will have access to an exclusive video from the composer of each original piece premiering in Stardust on October 16th. If you can spare a bit more, we've got more for you!

Learn more about Mason and her music at masonbynes.org

Thanks to everyone for the support!

This group is pitch perfect! UNT’s co-ed, contemporary A Capella group, the UNT Green Tones, was founded in 2008 and is currently getting ready to compete at The National A Cappella Convention in April. In February they were nominated for their very first Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award (CARA) for “No Place Like Home”. We’re #UNTproud of all the Green Tones are accomplishing!
