EVENT: Excessive Noise, an ongoing concert series features work by Villa-Lobos, Carter and university composers and performers.

WHEN: 6 p.m., Saturday, October 19, 2013.

WHERE: Fine Arts Library (DFA 3.200) at The University of Texas at Austin.

BACKGROUND: The fall edition of the Excessive Noise Concert Series at the Fine Arts Library will feature performances and compositions by current students and alumni of the Butler School of Music.

The concert will present a range of works extending as far back as the early 1700s and reaching all the way to the present day with two premiere performances. Brazilian icon Heitor Villa-Lobos and the late American master Elliott Carter highlight the program.

Excessive Noise is an occasional concert series hosted by the Fine Arts Library.  Organized by Russell Podgorsek — who earned his doctorate at the Butler School of Music and is an employee of the Fine Arts Library — the series provides students with an opportunity to perform chamber and solo works beyond those required by their degree programs.  It also provides an opportunity for the premier of original works beyond the classroom.  While generally in the classical vein, Excessive Noise features work from a variety of traditions and perspectives.

Parking is available in various parking garages around campus. The closest parking garage to the Fine Arts Library (FAL) is the San Jacinto parking garage which has an entrance on Trinity Street. Some fees apply. View location information and rate information for the San Jacinto parking garage.
