The annual Glenn Glasow Fellowship Concert, honoring the late Cal State East Bay professor of composition who died in 2002, will be held Thursday, May 22 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free to the concert, which will be held in the Recital Hall (room 1055) of the Music Building on CSUEB's Hayward Campus, 25800 Carlos Bee Boulevard.

REDSHIFT new music ensemble will perform compositions recently created by former students and colleagues of Glasow, who taught at the university for 34 years.

The compositions include Michael Zapruder, a recipient of the Glasow graduate fellowship; and works by Austin Graham, recipient of the Undergraduate Composition Award; PaoloTorresani; Ryan Rey; and Jeffrey Miller.

REDSHIFT is made up of Jeff Anderle on clarinet; Andie Springer on violin; Michelle Kwon on cello; and Kate Campbell playing the piano.

The Glenn Glasow Graduate Fellowship is supported by the Glenn Glasow and Yoshiko Kakudo Endowment of the CSUEB Music Department. The fellowship annually supports one master's student in music composition, providing both support for student fees and for the performance of a commissioned work on the Glenn Glasow Memorial Concert.
