Eminent composer, pianist and teacher Elliott Schwartz visited the campus for three days as the Ithaca College School of Music’s Karel Husa Visiting Professor of Composition. A highlight was two public events- Tuesday, Oct. 14, in the Iger Lecture Hall in the James J Whalen Center for Music, Schwartz gave a free talk on his music. In Ford Hall at Whalen Center, the Ithaca College Wind Ensemble performed one of Schwartz’s compositions. Conducted by Steven Peterson, the program also featured works by Hindemith, Holst and Hass.
