UW-Green Bay’s Contemporary Percussion Ensemble (led by Dr. Bill Sallak, Associate Professor of Music) forms the core ensemble for a performance of two iconic works of American minimalism. Frederic Rzewski’s Coming Together/Attica is a relentless meditation on a powerful text by Sam Melville; the performance will feature narration by Associate Lecturer of Theatre Alan Kopischke. The program is balanced out by Julius Eastman’s ebullient, genre-bending work Stay On It.
The 6:30 Series will welcome a distanced live audience in Fort Howard Hall in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, while simultaneously streaming live on UW-Green Bay Music’s YouTube Channel. Admission is free, and open to the public. A free reservation is recommended for in-person attendance.
