Ensemble Signal Plays More Reich

Tuesday, October 25, 2016, 6pm

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.

The music of Steve Reich once again takes center stage as Ensemble Signal guides audiences through three of Reich’s most intimate compositions. Reich himself referred to Cello Counterpoint as “one of the most difficult pieces I have ever written” due to the speed and precision with which it must be played. Another highlight of the program is Pendulum Music: four suspended microphones swing rhythmically over speakers creating hypnotizing feedback loops.

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