Sound Hearth: Happy 80th!
Celebrate the birthdays of newly minted octogenarians and composers that changed the course of musical history – Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and David Del Tredici. These composers were responsible for reviving the tonal tradition in composition after the mid-twentieth century’s fascination with atonality and serialism. In addition to hearing music by each of the composers, you’ll learn a work and perform it as a group!

Del Tredici works being performed:
Virtuoso Alice, solo piano

songs:

Now You Know
Quietness
Hot to Trot
Here
Ballad in Yellow
Acrostic Song (encore)
