Touch is the University of South Florida's iPad Quintet and has become the world's most renowned electronic music ensemble (maybe). The group, made up of music education faculty and PhD students from the School of Music, formed two years ago shortly after the release of the first iPad. Touch is a live performance ensemble that plays a wide variety of music from across musical styles including rock, rap and classical, as well as original music composed specifically for the ensemble.
The February 1 concert will feature collaborations with students and faculty from across campus and will involve dance, theater, poetry, painting and video. The concert will also include music from Pachelbel, Norah Jones, Coldplay and Blake Shelton, as well as a re-telling of the Wizard of Oz directed by live tweets from the audience. A Touch concert is a multimedia experience of sound, light, and motion where the audience plays an important role, and where anything is possible! Make sure to bring your own iPad or iPhone with any drum app installed so that you can participate in the concert!
