Terry Riley’s In C Community Music Event

  • Albright-Knox Art Gallery (map)

Do you play an instrument? Then join us for a workshop and performance of Terry Riley’s In C at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery! Premiered in 1964 at the San Francisco Tape Music Center, the Riley’s In C is a reactionary piece to the stifling rigidity of serialism and music academia of the time.

We will begin with a brief workshop explaining the piece, its history, and how our community performance will unfold. All you need is your instrument or your voice, the ability to read music, and an open mind! Non-playing participants are welcome too. Together we will create a memorable performance experience of this seminal minimalist work.

The event is free with $5 Family Funday admission and free for AK members.
