We are excited to announce the first of our many opportunities for public performances for fresh inc participants: Rush Hour Concerts. Continue reading to learn about the many benefits of fresh inc‘s partnership with Rush Hour.
fresh inc participants will have three unique opportunities to take part in Rush Hour Concerts, one of downtown Chicago’s most beloved and well-attended summer concert series. Fifth House Ensemble and festival participants will be featured on Tuesday, June 12, 2012.
All composers and performers (and even some special guests) will come together to perform a condensed version of Terry Riley’s landmark work In C using the large cathedral to its full acoustic, antiphonal capability.
One composition from the submitted works by fresh inc composers will be selected for performance on the Rush Hour concert series. This performance will be given by 5HE players.
Both performances will be heard by Rush Hour’s capacity weekly audiences of more than 650 attendees, and broadcast live on 98.7 WFMT and www.wfmt.com to over 250,000 listeners.
As an additional bonus, any participants who will be in the Chicago area on June 21, 2012 are invited to participate in the second annual Make Music Chicago, a free citywide festival of performances by all ages and musical genres presented by Rush Hour Concerts.
