T Riley 80th bday celebration “IN C”!

I was fortunate enough to be asked to join in as one of the 100+ participants of Third Coast Percussion’s presentation of Terry Riley’s 1964 composition “In C”.

In C scoreThe performing directions of “In C” state that “Any number of any kind of instruments can play”.  Therefore, to comply with Riley’s wishes to the fullest extent on his !80th birthday! TCP contacted ensembles from throughout Chicago:  Fifth House Ensemble, Grant Wallace Band, Mocrep, New Music Chicago, North Shore Concert Band, Parlour Tapes+, Spektral Quartet, Ursa Ensemble, DePaul University Ensemble 20+, Northern Illinois University, Merit School of Music, Mucca Pazza and more… Proving this performance to be a wildly unique experience for each musician – professional and amateur alike!
