Fri 12/1 @ 7:30PM
The Vanguard Guest Artist Series, hosted by New Music at Kent State, presents a program called “Contemplations,” with Cleveland’s Blue Streak Ensemble, founded and led by Margaret Brouwer, and guest pianist/composer Yehudi Wyner.
The Blue Streak Ensemble will open with Brouwer’s own “Shattered Glass,” followed by Wyner’s “Refrain,” performed by the composer. The program will also include African drumming-inspired “Awakenings of Earth and Time” by Kent State’s Frank Wiley, a Cleveland Institute of music alum and a Cleveland Arts Prize winner, and Wyner’s “Trio,” performed by three members of the Blue Streak Ensemble.
It takes place at the Ludwig Recital Hall in the Center for the Performing Arts.
