UC Santa Barbara second-year music major Kaitlin Webster-Zuber will present a special virtual concert with her sister Emily Webster-Zuber on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 at 6 pm (postponed from original date and time of Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at 6 pm) during Salastina Music Society’s “Happy Hour” Concert Series. As part of Salastina’s Sounds Promising education program, Kaitlin and Emily (both pianists and composers) have been working with Salastina’s resident musicians and composers throughout the 2019-20 year. At the end of each season, Salastina’s Resident Artists premiere the students’ pieces live, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Webster-Zubers were forced to get creative and bring their music to audiences virtually.
The program will feature “virtual premieres” of a piano quintet and string quartet by the Webster-Zuber sisters. The artists will also share their experiences with learning and creating music remotely. RSVP for the virtual event here.
Kaitlin Webster-Zuber is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Western Music at UC Santa Barbara, under the guidance of Professor Paul Berkowitz.
