Our season opens with a weekend of events celebrating the one-hundredth anniversary of the revolutionary composer, artist, and writer John Cage. All three of Cage’s groundbreaking Constructions for percussion ensemble will be interspersed with recent works by emerging American composers, creating a dialogue between a master and some newer voices of contemporary music.


Composers Lei Liang, Missy Mazzoli, and Samuel Carl Adams will be present. See samples of their music below!

Presented in association with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Click here for ticket information.
