Guest artists to perform music by Paul Bowles Sept. 26 at BYU

Guest artists soprano Carole Blankenship and pianist Irene Herrmann will perform a musical portrait celebrating music by Paul Bowles at Brigham Young University Monday, Sept. 26, at 5:30 p.m. in the Museum of Art auditorium. Admission is free.

The program contains music exclusively written by Paul Bowles, an American expatriate who spent more than 50 years in Tangier. Bowles is well known as an author, composer and translator and studied music with Aaron Copland.

Herrmann is an accompanist and lecturer at University of California, Santa Cruz as well as the executor of the Bowles music estate. Herrmann met Bowles in 1992 and traveled to visit him in Morocco until his death in 1999. She has since been editing, disseminating and performing Bowles’ music throughout the world.

Blankenship is an assistant professor of music at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn. Blankenship has performed throughout the world and is a frequent master class clinician. In October 2010, she presented a paper at the International Paul Bowles Conference at the University of Lisbon, Portugal.
