7:00 P.M. in Brown Hall @ NEC

OPEN FOR’m is an immersion, an encounter, a multi-dimensional experience.  The Callithumpian Consort focuses on a single piece of music in a free-form event made of equal parts teach-in, demonstration, free-form discussion, open rehearsal, Q and A session, pre-concert lecture, and post-concert reception.  Sit next to and among the performers; experience the music, its history, challenges and beauties from the inside of the group!

Tonight’s concert is an encounter with the music of NEC alumnus Lei Liang ’96, ’98 M.M.  This evening will include experiences with the following pieces:

Brush Stroke (2004)
Aural Hypothesis (2010)
Bamboo Lights (2013)
Parts for a Floating Space (2001)

OPEN FOR’m will continue with a concert at Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum on February 21st — the very next night — that will include the premiere of Bamboo Lights by Lei Liang, one of several Callithumpian Consort premieres scheduled for the Gardner Museum in 2013.
