Electronic Music ‘Cowboy Land’ Featured April 26 at UW

A live electronic music concert -- created by University of Wyoming students and members of Denver’s innovative Playground Ensemble -- will be at 5 p.m. Friday, April 26.

The UW Department of Music will present “Cowboy Land” in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts recital hall. The event, free and open to the public, is geared for ages 4 years and up.

The Playground Ensemble, in residence at Metropolitan State University in Denver, is the Rocky Mountain region’s premier new music group of professional musicians, composers, educators and fans dedicated to presenting chamber music as a living art form.

In addition to concert seasons that feature the work of recognized composers, the ensemble works at cultivating a thriving local composition community. With outreach programs, such as the innovative Young Composers Playground, the ensemble shows young people that classical music is vibrant, adventurous and relevant. The ensemble hopes to inspire audiences not only to listen, but to create.

The residency of the Playground Ensemble for the UW concert and associated workshops is made possible by the Wyoming Excellence Fund.
