Third Stream

Our upcoming New Music Circle concert, on Saturday, April 2nd, 7:30pm, at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown St. Louis, will absolutely be one of the premier musical events of the season. Pianist, Peter Henderson will perform the great 20th century masterpiece, “The People United Will Never Be Defeated!” by Frederic Rzewski¬†and a complete reading of the “24 Studies in African Rhythms” by Nigerian/Ghanian born St. Louis composer, Fred Onovwerosuoke. Fred O, as he’s nicknamed, is a highly respected composer and choral director in the area, so I’m looking forward to his work; and the Rzewski piece I’ve heard performed by Ursula Oppens in New York and on recordings. It’s a piece that never gets old! Its thrilling and climactic variations on a simple melody create an effect that will remain a part of you long after this concert is over.
