These free events are open to the public, however all performances at ’62 require tickets via the Box Office: 413-597-2425.

Out of THE BOX
I/O Soloists

On Saturday, January 9, 2pm in the Williams College Museum of Art, soloists from I/O New Music will turn the museum from a static physical space into a vibrant temporal one. Works range from Paul Hindemith’s solo cello sonata to Paul Groh’s Jive Turkey for solo viola, to works by Aperghis, Scelsi, and John Cage. Audience members will be given a map and a time schedule so that they may construct their own musical experience, deciding which of the musical installations they wish to hear up close. Come hear the museum transform into a resonant, ephemeral space. [No tickets necessary.]

Program:

Paul Hindemith, Sonate für Violoncello allein, opus 25, no. 3
Georges Aperghis, Le Corps a corps
Paul Groh, Jive Turkey for viola solo
Giacinto Scelsi, Tre Pezzi
Georges Aperghis, Recitations
