Minimalism’s Evolution

Courtney Orlando, Lauren Radnofsky

Tuesday, October 23, 2012, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

  Three generations of minimalist composers are featured in the first Pop-Up of the season, with music for violin, cello, and electronics. Program highlights include the US premiere of a work by Dublin-based composer Donnacha Dennehy, whose music the The New York Times describes as “magnificently energetic” and “viscerally thrilling.”

  Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings. This fall, Miller continues its Pop-Up Concerts, an informal, free series designed to provide a chance to test out ideas and hear from new voices before they hit the Miller mainstage. This fresh take on the concert experience brings an intimate, living room-type setting to Miller’s stage. All concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
