Not So Quiet City with Peter Evans

Sunday 14 January 2018
2:00PM - 3:00PM
Penn Museum


Relâche New Music Ensemble offers up a program at the Penn Museum featuring new music with the celebrated avant-garde trumpeter/composer Peter Evans and three members of his band. Evans is the recipient of this year's Dina Wind Commission. In addition to some of Evans' own improvisational compositions, he and the Ensemble add improv to Aaron Copland’s 1941 "Quiet City,” a work that also features English Horn performed by Relâche’s own Lloyd Shorter. "Mural Music," Chuck Holdeman's 2014 collaboration with Philadelphia Mural Arts, is on the program, and another improvisation based piece, Pauline Oliveros' "The Well." A ticket may be used to enter and explore the Museum galleries any time after 1:00 pm on the day of the concert.

Admission: $20 general admission; $15 for seniors; $10 for Penn Museum members; $5 for students with ID, with an accompanying student free.
