The 25th annual Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music opens with a concert featuring contemporary music ensemble, Brightwork newmusic. Ensemble members include: Tereza Stanislav, violin; Maggie Parkins, cello; Sara Andon, flute; Phil O’Connor, clarinet; Nick Terry, percussion; and Aron Kallay*, piano. The group will perform music by Bill Alves, Tom Flaherty, Kaija Saariaho, and others.
The festival is named after Vladimir Ussachevsky (1911-1990), Pomona ’35, who was a pioneer in the field of electronic music and co-founder of the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center in New York. He left a bequest to the college to support activities in the field of electronic music, which has funded much of our equipment and the founding of this series.
