UCSD Dept. of Music

UCSD’s Department of Music opens its Winter 2011 Concert Season with the Wednesday, Jan. 12 West Coast debut of the renowned Wet Ink Ensemble, performing a program featuring a new work by UCSD composer and music faculty member Katharina Rosenberger.

The Wet Ink Ensemble is a New York-based new music collective. The group's repertoire is diverse, ranging from scores of rigorous notational complexity to indeterminate and improvisational music; from the American experimental tradition to the contemporary European avant-garde; from acoustic to amplified to electronic works and works for homemade instruments.

Season highlights include the popular Camera Lucida chamber music series (Jan. 31, March 14), the 13-concert Sonic Diasporas alumni music festival (Jan. 20-22), and the Wednesdays@7 new and experimental music series that begins with Wet Ink and continues with pianist Aleck Karis (Jan. 26), Palimpsest chamber orchestra (Feb. 8), and sitarist Kartik Seshadri (March 9).

Together with many other concerts featuring faculty, grad students, and ensembles such as the Gospel Choir and Wind Ensemble, the Department of Music is presenting more than 40 concerts in January, February and March.

Most concerts take place at the department’s Conrad Prebys Music Center that opened in 2009 and includes the architecturally and acoustically superb 400-seat Conrad Prebys Concert Hall.

Ticket prices range from $25 for Camera Lucida (a collaboration of renowned performers from San Diego Symphony and UCSD music faculty) and $15 for Wednesdays@7, to several performances offering FREE admission. Discounts are available for UCSD faculty, staff, alumni, and Friends of Music, and students can take advantage of free student rush tickets one hour before paid concerts including Camera Lucida and Wednesdays@7.
