The second day of the 27th annual Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music features special guest composer/violinist Mari Kimura and opens at 3 p.m. when she will lead a lecture/demonstration in Lyman Hall. This award-winning musician has been hailed for extending the technical and expressive capabilities of the instrument.
At 8 p.m. joining Ms. Kimura for the evening concert are the Eclipse Quartet (Sara Parkins and Sarah Thornblade, violin; Alma Fernandez, viola; Maggie Parkins cello), and performances by Sarah Thornblade, violin and Joti Rockwell, guitar and others in music by Ms. Kimura, Eve Beglarian and more.
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.
