The Ultimate Jam Session: In C
Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 10:00 pm
SMOG, Bard College
Free and open to the public
In the first performance on our Late-Night Jam series, contemporaneous will be hosting the ultimate jam session at SMOG on the campus of Bard College. We will be playing Terry Riley's masterwork In C, a piece that can be played by any number of any instruments, for any length of time and we want everyone – all instrument and voice types – to come and participate. If you can read music, you can play In C.
If you would like to take part in the first contemporaneous jam session, please contact us for more information, or RSPV on the Facebook event page. Feel free to download the score for In C and have a look at it before the show. In this performance, we will also present the world premiere of contemporaneous Co-Artistic Director Dylan Mattingly's new work 2,953 Miles (39 Days & 6 Hours), our first ever world premiere.
