Clocks in Motion with Jamie Van Eyck, soprano; Paul Rowe, baritone; and Justin Stolarik, conductor.
The sixth of George Crumb’s American Songbook cycles consists of American songs from north, south, east, and west, including well known folk songs such as Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “When the Saints Go Marching In,” and Pete Seeger’s “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” This unique and rarely performed work requires over 100 different percussion instruments on stage at once. You won’t want to miss it!
Our season is in full swing now! With the success our season opener behind us, we are now looking forward to our next concert THIS FRIDAY at MMoCA. We will once again be using our new instrument, funded by the New Ventures Grant, the quarimba on this concert! If you missed us on September 29th, then you still have a chance to hear the quarimba AND John Jeffrey Gibbens’ new composition Allhallows (Prelude) on Friday October 5th.
Clocks in Motion is performing for the opening of a new gallery by visual artist, Robert Lostutter. For more information on the event, here’s a link to the advertisement in the Isthmus Daily Page:
