The second day of the 28th annual Ussachevsky Memorial Festival of Electro Acoustic Music starts with a 3pm lecture/demonstration with guest composer, Christopher Cerrone whose works have been called utterly compelling and uniquely his own.
The 8 p.m. concert highlights performances by Sara Andon, flute; Brian Walsh, clarinet; Adrianne Pope and Jeff Gauthier, violin; Cynthia Fogg, viola; Maggie Parkins, cello; Aron Kallay and Genevieve Feiwen Lee, piano; and Yuri Inoo, percussion; in a program featuring music by Cerrone, Tom Flaherty and Jorge Villavicencio Grossmann.
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.
