OSFL Chamber Series Concert – The Ithaca New Music Collective
November 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10 – $30
The Ithaca New Music Collective performs 4 times a year in venues around Ithaca. A sample program includes classics of the contemporary repetoire in combination with music from living composers from the local community. Past performances included works by Luciano Berio (Sequenza 1), Steve Reich (Clapping Music), local composers Avner Finberg (Ascensions Solo Violin) and Josh Oxford (Love for Gloria). In this concert, however, we will present a simple hour long piece which is Stravinsky’s Historie du Soldat (A Soldier’s Tale). The text, a tale of a soldier who sells his fiddle to the devil in return for worldly riches, will be narrated during the performance. 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the piece and the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI.
A reception of wine and cheese will be held at 6:45
