The Cal U Recital Series opens its 2010-2011 season with a performance by Alia Musica Pittsburgh at 8 p.m. Oct. 26 in Gallagher Music Center's Recital Hall, Room 107.

Alia Musica was created in 2006 by 11 young composers in Pittsburgh. Since then it has produced nearly 30 premieres of music by emergent composers with ties to the Pittsburgh area.

The group performs both intimate chamber concerts and large-scale concerts featuring large ensembles. A regular core performance group, assembled through its first two years of existence, is supplemented with guest performers who are invited to join the group as needed.

The free event is open to the Cal U community and to the public; donations will be accepted to defray costs. Supporting the event are the College of Liberal Arts, the Student Association Inc. and the Student Activities Board.
