Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings.

Either/Or celebrates three trailblazing composers in the opening Pop-Up concert of the season, an intimate program featuring artistic directors Richard Carrick on piano and David Shively on percussion. Lucier’s Still Lives is inspired by the interplay of perfectsine waves and live piano. In Ancestral Bells, Radilescu blends his spectral techniques of composition with a Romanian Christmas carol, while Feldman’s Why Patterns? interweaves myriad rhythms from each instrument – never choosing a dominate one – to open up new sonic patterns.

All concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
