(April 10, 2013) -- The UTSA Department of Music marketing program will present nationally known singer-songwriter Ernie Halter and Austin's 21-piece, award-winning orchestral indie band Mother Falcon for a concert performance at 8 p.m., Wednesday, April 24 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus. Admission is $15.

Halter's music has been featured on "Good Morning America," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." Additionally, he has shared the studio and the stage with several top acts including Neil Young, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum, Jason Mraz, Colby Caillat and Sara Barielles.

Halter made international headlines in 2011 when Justin Bieber made a surprise appearance at his concert in Costa Mesa, Calif., and joined him onstage to perform his composition, "Come Home To Me." Halter has released five albums, most recently his acoustic album "Hi Fidelity." Following Halter's performance, Austin 21-piece orchestral indie band Mother Falcon will take the stage.

With only two albums under its belt, Mother Falconhas risen to the top of Austin's live music scene, selling out several noted venues including Antone's, The Mohawk and The Parish. The large multi-instrumental band that combines orchestra and pop styles performed at SXSW last month and has made several festival appearances including FunFunFun Fest. The group was a headliner for the Austin Chamber Music Festival in 2012. For the last three years, Mother Falcon won the "Best None of the Above Award" category at the Austin Music Awards.

The concert will be produced by students in the UTSA Music Marketing program in the College of Liberal and Fine Arts. The program provides students the opportunity to work directly with professionals and learn various facets of the music industry. Students participate in creative music marketing projects in a seminar setting and as a dedicated course for projects.
Previous UTSA music marketing program projects include:

  • Promoting a concert collaboration with the classic rock group Kansas and the UTSA Orchestra,
  • Working with San Antonio Symphony management to market orchestral concerts to colleges,
  • Assisting with the production of the international Southwest Guitar Festival and
  • Organizing a highly successful battle of the bands competition at a local music venue.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
