C Is For Concert


A "C" isn't so hot grade-wise but a C (more exactly, C major) can provide you a fine evening's horizon-stretching entertainment. So you ask: What are you on about, Cee Cee? We're talking about Terry Riley’s renowned 1964 composition In C, a chestnut of the avant-garde musical canon and frequently cited as the first minimalist score. The piece is played entirely in one scale, C major, and there are infinite, entirely fluid variations it can assume because the musicians performing it -- on any instrument they choose -- are assigned only the loosest guidelines as to how to move from measure to measure. This evening at 6 p.m., you can enjoy HEARDing Cats Collective's interpretation of this famously plastic opus at Summer Kyma: The Plaza In C. The concert will be performed at the Old Post Office Plaza (Ninth and Locust streets) and it's free and open to the public. For additional information, visit
