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.

loadbang’s unique instrumentation—bass clarinet, trumpet, trombone, and baritone voice—means that each piece on the program was composed with the group in mind. Their Miller debut showcases the versatility of the “inventive” (New York Times) ensemble, from Pulitzer Prize-winner Charles Wuorinen’s Alphabetical Ashbery, whichdraws inspiration from the New York poet John Ashbery, to What Is The Word, in which Scott Wollschleger blends the text of Samuel Beckett’s last poem with whispers, trills, and slaps.

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