On Vibrate — Pop and Post-minimalism in American Music
If you think that all the great classical music was written before the dawn of the 20th century, Aperio will be happy to prove you wrong with On Vibrate — Pop and Post-minimalism in American Music. The latest offering by Aperio, the chamber orchestra dedicated to the music of composers from the Americas, Vibrate chronicles the evolution of classical music away from academic modernism into the more experimental forms of the 21st century. Works included are John Adams’s acclaimed Road Movies for violin and piano, Legions Will Rise by Kevin Puts, and works by Michael Torke and Carter Pann. All these modern masters embrace new forms and new technologies in putting together contemporary classics. 8 p.m. Station Museum for Contemporary Art, 1502 Alabama.
