GVSU student composers to give concert of original music

At Grand Valley State University, many music majors perform recitals with their instrument for their senior project. While these recitals give music students an opportunity to share their talent, a number of students compose their own pieces and have few chances to share them with others. Recognizing this, GVSU senior Josh Doane organized the GVSU Composer Concert, which is scheduled for Friday, March 16, from 9 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. in the Haas Center for Performing Arts.
