I’m so looking forward to collaborating with Trevor on this concert! This performance will be held in Lincoln Hall Room 75 (in the basement).
Trevor is a composer, violist, and innovator in the field of electronic music and looping. He specifically composes music for yoga and collaborates with dancers to explore sound and improvise together. In this recital, we will be juxtaposing classical music, some present-day composers (both pop and classical), improvisation, and movement. Trevor will also take some time to share about the arm band he has created to allow a dancer/performer to affect his sound through their movement.
We are so excited to share this musical experience with you! Tickets can be found here.
$20 day of concert (cash)
$15 in advance (Artery)

Here's a little more about Trevor:
Trevor New, an Electro-Acoustic musician from Oregon and now living in Brooklyn, uses music technology and repurposed electronics to tell stories of struggles, dreams, family, and awakening through his music. He is a classically trained violist turned improviser, film composer/sound designer, and live looping artist. Every show he plays is different, just like old aural tradition of story telling, he never tells any story the same way.

Liz Kohl is a pianist, instructor, and adjunct member of the faculty at PSU. She teaches "Yoga for Musicians" at PSU, a curriculum which was developed during her Master's degree. During grad school, Liz started to notice that many of her undergraduate students held a lot of unnecessary tension in their bodies. Because of this, she decided to pursue certification to be a yoga instructor and received her 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training. She was then able to combine her experiences teaching yoga and research in body wellness in her thesis, "Cultivating Awareness in the Piano Student." Part of her thesis was a projected syllabus for the class she now teaches.
Liz has a private piano studio in SE Portland where she teaches students of all ages. She works as a freelance collaborative pianist and is a worship leader at her church.
