kETTY nEZ '87
Ketty Nez '87

Composer and pianist Ketty Nez '87 will return to Bryn Mawr this Saturday to perform with the Chamber Music Society in a concert featuring music by Beethoven, Clarke, Poulenc and Brahms. The event, to take place in Goodhart Music Room at 8 p.m., is free and open to all; light refreshments will be served.

Nez, who is known worldwide for her work with electronic music, has also studied traditional Japanese instruments such as the koto, biwa and sho, and she keeps a full piano performance schedule. Her music has been played at festivals in the United States, including the Aspen Music Festival and at Tanglewood Music Center, as well as in countries such as Bulgaria, England and Finland.

She has served as composer-in-residence at the Ecole Nationale de Musique in Montbeliard, France, and as visiting composer at Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music. Among her orchestral works, "Machaut Mirrored" was premiered by the Dutch orchestra Insomnio, "Afterimages" by the Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra, and "Multi-Masking" by the 1993 Women's Philharmonic New Music Reading Session. The Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group commissioned and premiered "Pir-Ondine," which the New York New Music Ensemble also performed at the 1998 June in Buffalo Festival.

At Bryn Mawr, Nez will join four Bryn Mawr faculty members: Karen Greif (oboe, Biology), Frank Mallory (clarinet, Chemistry), Paul Melvin (cello, Mathematics), and Neal Williams (bassoon, Biology). Along with Nez, guest artists include Janet Ahlquist (piano), Alison Avery (viola) and Geoffrey Michaels (violin).
