"In C"

If you studied music with Stephen Scott you likely have fond affection for Terry Riley's In C, which happens to be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.  The Sunday afternoon concert will culminate with a performance of the work that we hope will feature as many alumni in attendance as possible.

A copy of the score can be found here.  If you plan to participate in the performance, please be in touch with Ryan ASAP.  (Note: This is a cloaked email address to avoid the inherent spam created by a blog.)
