Come Play or Watch Terry Riley's "In C" Thursday at UAA

Friends and colleagues,

On Thursday, April 19th at 1:00 pm, in Room 150 of the UAA Fine Arts building, my Music Theory IV class will be attempting a rendition of Terry Riley's iconic minimalist canvas, In C

A couple people have told me In C has been done before in Anchorage, but nobody can remember when, where, or by whom.

I'm inviting UAA students who aren't class members to participate.  And - in this email - I'm inviting friends and colleagues from the Anchorage music community who have participated in or supported past events at UAA to come join us if you can.

If you come, you will have to pay for about two hours parking at one of the meters.  

We hope to make a video of the rendition.

Here's a link to information on the music's history

Here's a link to the score, instructions and part. 

You need to be able to play it on your instrument or with your voice.  You can transpose it to an octave in your register.  For those who might bring a transposing instrument, please remember - the part is In C.

You can also come to watch in the hall.
