Education Week opens with a free concert that features O Duo and Fraser Trainer, MSO musicians and MSO ArtPlay Graduates. The repertoire performed will be Terry Riley’s seminal work In C.
Composed in 1964, In C is often cited as the first minimalist composition. Written for any combination or number of instruments, it comprises of 53 melodic fragments played in sequence, with each performer having the freedom to determine how many times he or she will repeat each pattern before moving on to the next.
You are encouraged to walk amongst the performers for the duration of the performance. No two performances are ever the same.
