Earlier this month, Assistant Professor of Music Adam Schoenberg talked with The Occidental about teaching at Oxy and the life of a composer. The article profiles Professor Schoenberg, noting his status as "...one of the top ten most performed living composers in the U.S. by multiple orchestras." The article calls attention to Schoenberg's newest work, the percussion concerto "Losing Earth", which will debut in a performance next month by the San Francisco Symphony. Schoenberg composed this piece in his campus office.
