College to host free modern classical music concert

Nonprofit recital series Sunday at Central will present a free concert titled “Appalachian Spring Revisited: The Copland/Vine Project—at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15, 2012, in the South Gym at Antioch College.

With financial support from The Johnstone Fund for New Music, Sunday at Central will offer an hour-long program that includes Aaron Copland’s beloved modern work Appalachian Spring, in its original orchestration for 13 instruments, and the world premiere of a composition for the same ensemble of instruments by Seattle-based composer Anthony Vine. Both pieces will be performed by premier Columbus musicians and conducted by Olev Viro.

The Pulitzer-Prize-winning Appalachian Spring premiered in 1944. Vine’s new work draws inspiration from Copland’s original score and from his current state as a news media junkie, and offers short bursts of musical fragments indicative of our over-saturated news landscape.

Musicians in the ensemble include Brett Allen (viola); Luis Biava (cello); Jean Etienne-Lederer (bass); Robert Firdman (violin); Randy Hester (flute); Robert Jones (clarinet); Mariko Kaneda (piano); Mark Kosmala (cello); Kenichiro Matsuda (viola); David Niwa (violin); Mary Jean Petrucci (violin); Jonquil Thoms (violin); and Christopher Weait (bassoon).

Donations to Sunday at Central will be graciously accepted.

Opening Reception and Artist Talk with Zachary Cahill

Antioch College's Herndon Gallery will kick off the exhibition of artist Zachary Cahill's The Orphanage Project with an opening reception featuring an artist talk with Cahill. Employing the device of the “what if—scenario, The Orphanage Project imagines a world in which the USSA is possible: not a watered-down mèlange of US and Soviet identities, but something new. Drawing on the imagery of the bear, the project playfully and pointedly asks hard questions pertaining to ideology.
