PREVIEW: Music for 18 Musicians


Steve Reich

Tomorrow in Hill Auditorium, two renowned, award-winning contemporary music ensembles will be joining forces to present a concert honoring one of the most influential American composers, Steve Reich, for his 80th birth year.

The main feature on the program is Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians, an hour-long work which, due to its musical and logistical demands, is seldom performed. Ann Arbor is extremely lucky to have Eighth Blackbird and Third Coast Percussion, which are both Chicago-based, Grammy-award-winning ensembles, come together to perform this landmark piece of minimalist repertoire!

The performance will be on Saturday, March 18th at 8pm in Hill Auditorium, with a pre-concert talk beginning at 7:30.  Buy your tickets here or at the League ticket office!
