The second day of the 26th annual Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music features composer/harpist Zeena Parkins. At 3 p.m. Ms. Parkins will lead a lecture/demonstration entitled “Source of Uncertainty” in Lyman Hall. At 8 p.m. Pomona College faculty performers along with Ms. Parkins will offer a concert of contemporary music by Parkins, and others. Performers are Genevieve Feiwen Lee and Aron Kallay (piano), Cynthia Fogg (viola), and Rachel Rudich (flute).

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.

The festival opens on Friday.
