Otterbein University to Present Humor in Music Festival

March 7, 2014

Westerville, OH—Otterbein University’s Department of Music will present the Humor in Music Festival, focusing on works which involve humor, satire or cultural commentary, from March 27-April 1 as part of the University’s Enrichment Series. All performances are free and open to the public, with the exception of the Westerville Symphony concert on March 29.

The Humor in Music Festival will feature guest composer Jon Deak, former assistant principal bass of the New York Philharmonic, and his humorous composition, Condominium on the Hot Stove. Deak’s compositions often explore the relationships of text and words, theatricality in music and music as performance art. Faculty and students will perform humorous works selected from a regional call for scores. This festival is certain to delight classical music lovers, as well as skeptics.
