University of Baltimore Integrated Arts Program Director Jeffrey Hoover will perform "When Sight Meets Sound," a combination of his own compositions, with pianist Duke Thompson and guitarist Stephen Seidenman, alongside the mixed media of Hoover’s visual artwork. Hoover’s students will read poetry with this blending of new classical music and jazz. The concert will take place on Wednesday, March 27 at 7 p.m. in the Wright Theater in the UB Student Center, 21 W. Mt. Royal Ave. 

Both a saxophonist and a composer woodwind player, Hoover also paints. He described his paintings as visual interpretations of music; the audience "can both hear and see the ideas as they unfold on the stage."

Thompson is founder and president of the Maryland Conservatory of Music and has been teaching at UB through its new Integrated Arts Degree program. He recorded a solo CD, Lots to Consider, in 2009.

Seidenman performs in the Baltimore and Washington, DC areas. In 2011 he was invited to perform at the 8th annual Zihuatanejo International Guitar Festival in Southern Mexico. In 2009 he released his second CD, Guitar Recital, which includes live concert performances, as well as studio recordings.
