"Mabel Kwan brings a unique thoughtfulness to the piano that makes her visit to Southeastern an exciting, significant offering to the area's artistic community," said Fine and Performing Arts Interim Department Head Kenneth Boulton.
Kwan will present a program of compositions, including world premieres by Kari Besharse and Philip Schuessler, both faculty members of the music program at Southeastern.
The performance is in conjunction with FOCI Arts and Lyceum Arts and Lectures. FOCI ("facilitating original creativity inclusively") is a New Orleans-based organization devoted to the contemporary arts.
