Concerts from Eric Moe and Adriana Helbig

The Department of Music doesn't have any scheduled events this weekend, but that doesn't mean members of the Department aren't busy.

If you're are in the New York City area on Friday, September 30, you can hear the premiere of Eric Moe's new percussion piece Danger: Giant Frogs as part of a performance from Talujon Percussion. The concert takes place at Roulette at 8 p.m.

Here in Pittsburgh on Saturday, October 1, Adriana Helbig has been the driving force behind a concert by the Ukrainian Bandurist Chorus that takes place at 7 p.m. in Bellefield Hall Auditorium. The concert benefits the Ukrainian Language Studies program at Pitt. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette featured an excellent preview and history of the group on Wednesday.
