Guest to Play Music of African Diaspora


Byline: The Register-Guard

Today's large music and dance showcase at the Hult Center and a recital concerning music of the African diaspora highlight a full week of performances from the University of Oregon School of Music.

UO SCHOOL OF MUSIC

William Chapman Nyaho

Tuesday, Beall Hall

Pianist William Chapman Nyaho, a native of Ghana, will perform music by composers of the African diaspora - the dispersion of Africans during and after the Atlantic slave trade.

The Faculty Artist Series recital will be at 8 p.m. Tuesday in Beall Concert Hall, 961 E. 18th Ave. Tickets are $9 ($5 for students and seniors) at the door.

During Nyaho's residency at the UO, he will also give two talks on the topic. The first, 10 a.m. Tuesday in Room 198 of the music building, is called "Composers of the African Diaspora." Nyaho will offer an in-depth look at some of the music to be performed during his recital. Composers include Margaret Bonds, Joshua Uzoigwe and Oswald Russell, among others.

The second lecture, at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Collier House, 1170 E. 13th Ave., is called "An Artist in Two Worlds: The African Tradition and the Culture of the West." It will draw on Nyaho's own struggle to reconcile his African heritage with colonial cultural influences in Africa.
