Faculty Recital
An Australian Voice?
SUN, FEB. 19 | 2 PM
ZINGG RECITAL HALL

Founded by the British Empire in 1788 as a place to send its criminals, Australia is a young and culturally diverse nation that has struggled to define its unique national identity. Examining the issue from a musical perspective, Dr. Bradley Martin, chair of the Department of Music and Theatre, asks the question, “What makes Australian music Australian?” Visual images, conversation, and live performance at the piano combine to demonstrate elements of a uniquely Australian musical voice. For a true “dinky di” experience, don’t forget your “swag” and “billy!”

WISMER THEATRE

Really Really is a contemporary drama that pushes the edges and embraces the harsh reality of today’s youth. At an elite university, when the party of the year results in the regret of a lifetime, one person will stop at nothing to salvage a future that is suddenly slipping away. In this quick-witted and
gripping comic tragedy about “Generation Me,” it’s every man for himself. Written by Paul Downs Colaizzo and presented by the Department of Music and Theatre.

$15 Adult | $13 Seniors | $6 Youth & CSU, Chico Students
