The Stony Brook Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Eduardo Leandro, will perform three virtuoso works of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth joins the orchestra for Berio’s landmark Sinfonia (1968), originally performed by the Swingle Singers with the New York Philharmonic under Leonard Bernstein. Rachel Schutz performs Ligeti’s madcap Mysteries of the Macabre (1992), and visiting composer Ken Ueno, overtone singer, performs his On a Sufficient Condition for the Existence of Most Specific Hypothesis (2008).
The concert will be held on Saturday, October 29, at 8 pm on Staller Center’s Main Stage, with a free pre-concert lecture by Professor Judith Lochhead at 7 pm in the Recital Hall.
Tickets for the concert are $20 for general admission and $10 for students and seniors.
