Rudolf Haken, composer and violist, will be a special guest of the Instrumental Music Department for two days in May. While still in the planning stages, the visit will consist of a presentation for composition students, a performance, and sectional coaching. And there is the possibility of a collaboration with Spoken Arts, given Mr. Haken's commitment to Hip Hop as a form of expression.
Mr. Haken, currently a member of the music faculty of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is a viola professor and director of the University of Illinois Hip Hop Collective.
