Percussion Ensemble Concert: A John Cage “Musicircus”

Mon, Nov 11, 7:30 pm | Free | Tweed Museum of Art

Event Navigation

The UMD Department of Music hosts a “musicircus,” curated by Dr. Gene Koshinski, featuring the works of John Cage, one of the 20th Century’s most prolific composers. During the 90-minute art installation, more than 400 minutes of music will be performed simultaneously (3-10 works at any given time), creating what is known as a musicircus. This musical installation is performed within a sea of world-renowned visual art in the Tweed Museum.

Audience members are encouraged to wander throughout the performance space during the musicircus in order to experience the event from different perspectives. Each listener will have a unique experience depending on what they choose to hear/see, what they happen to hear/see, and what they do not hear/see.

The John Cage Musicircus will be performed by members of the UMD Percussion Ensemble, Music Department faculty, and School of Fine Arts Dean Robert Kase.
