The newly formed Women and Art Music (WAM!) group will be giving its first public performance next Monday, March 9, at 8 PM in Fairchild Chapel. WAM! is a group of ten women musicians from Oberlin who are dedicated to celebrate women in the ever-growing new music scene by performing works by living women new music performers. WAM!’s inaugural performance will be the piece “six for new time,” by Pauline Oliveros. This piece holds special significance as Oliveros composed the piece ten years ago this month in Oberlin.
