Ensemble Signal

Tuesday, February 11, 2014, 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.

Continuing the theme from their September Pop-Up appearance, Ensemble Signal returns with another program of solo works. This concert features one of the Ensemble’s favorite composers, Hilda Paredes, with the U.S. premiere of her Intermezzo malinconico for bass clarinet, alongside two works by David Lang for solo percussion, both of which were originally commissioned by another Miller Theatre featured artist, Steven Schick. This unique pairing gives audiences a chance to experience a range of experiments in the solo form, and compare how these master composers and musicians have navigated the idiosyncrasies of their chosen instruments.

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