The third annual Festival of Modern Music will be held May 2 – 3 in the amphitheater next to the Performing Arts Theatre.

Participation is free and open to all students, faculty, staff and alumni from any Oklahoma institution of higher education.  Performances range between 30 and 60 minutes, with 15 minutes to set up between acts.

This festival is sponsored by the Music Engineering and Industry Program and is offered free of charge to attendees as well as performers in an effort to attract a large audience and wide variety of performers. Parking is also free.

Dr. Jeremy Clifton, Professor of Music, Music Engineering & Industry, and Percussion, also known as “The Doc of Rock,” coordinates the festival every year and plays a set with his band, Angelical Tears.

Other past performers include RSC born and bred bands Jess & Johnny, the RSC Jazz Ensemble, The Denuo Project, and the RSC Top 40 Band.

“This festival displays the performing talents of current and former students, staff, and professors as well as the talents and skills of current Music Engineering & Industry students.” Clifton said.

The festival is also a great opportunity to give his music engineering students real world experience with live venues.

Any musicians interested in performing in this year’s festival need to contact Jeremy Clifton at (405) 733.7426 or email jclifton@gmail.com.
