UMass Music & Dance Faculty member featured on new CD & in Concert***CANCELLED***


Professor of Tuba, John Bottomley, is featured on the CD of a groundbreaking opera to be released on October 1, 2015.  Deus Ex Machina, a new graphic novel steampunk opera by composer Robert J. Bradshaw, is an electro-acoustic composition accompanied not by an orchestra, as one might expect, but by the brass quintet Bala Brass.  Bottomley is the tuba player in Bala Brass.
