The University of Tampa will host the NOW Ensemble on Oct. 5 for an afternoon discussion of their music followed by an evening performance.

The NOW Ensemble uses a unique mix of instruments-- the flute, clarinet, electric guitar, double bass and piano -- and a group of vibrant performers and composers to create 21st century-style chamber music.

The discussion, which is titled “The Music of NOW Ensemble: Creating a Unique Ensemble Sound in the 21st Century,” will be held at 4 p.m. Members of the ensemble will give a lecture on the works that have been written for them during their 12 years.

The performance is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values. The University of Tampa Interactive Arts Ensemble will also perform with the premiere of piece that will explore sign language, color and sound as ways of communicating.

Both events are free and open to the public.
